12 Oct 2017 The Toughest Places For a Girl To Get An Education
Educating girls can change the world, but over 130 million girls didn’t go to school today. Millions more braved long distances, often in dangerous conditions, to get there. Other girls arrived at school to sit in a classroom where a teacher never arrived, or where there were no textbooks or other materials that help students learn. Because of this, in 2017, nearly half a billion women worldwide still cannot read.To make sure every girl has the chance of getting a good education, we need to understand where girls are being left behind. That’s why ONE has created the Toughest Places for a Girl to Get an Education index.
