Why we need to educate girls so they reach their full potential
Watch to see why educating girls will benefit the world
We know girls deserve the right to education, but do we understand how it could truly change the world if more girls were empowered?
“There are more than 62-million girls around the world who are not in school,” says Michelle Obama, the former first lady in the U.S., in this video from the U.S. Department of State’s ShareAmerica platform. “One of these girls could have the potential to cure cancer or start a business that transforms an industry … but if she never sets foot in a classroom the chances are she will never discover or fulfil that potential.”
Watch this video to see how girls who are educated feed success in their lives, their community and their economy.
