129 million females worldwide, including 32 million in primary school, 30 million in lower secondary education, and 67 million in upper secondary education, are believed to be out of school, according to estimates from UNESCO. Girls living in conflict-ridden areas are more than twice as likely to not attend school as girls in non-affected areas.

Impact of Female Education   

Communities, countries, and the world are improved by promoting girls' education. Girls who complete their education are more likely to have long, happy lives and are less likely to get married young. They improve their own and their families' futures, earn more money, and participate in decisions that most directly impact them. 

Girls' education increases economies and reduces inequality. It promotes the development of more stable, robust societies where all people, especially boys and men, have the opportunity to realise their full potential.
