When you educate a girl in Africa, everything changes. She’ll be three times less likely to get HIV/AIDS, earn 25 percent more income and have a smaller, healthier family. Education can change everything. In sub-Saharan Africa, 24 million girls can't afford to go to school. A girl may marry as young as 13 and has a one in 22 chance of dying in childbirth. One in six of her children will die before the age of five. Research shows if you educate a girl she’ll: earn up to 25 percent more and reinvest 90 percent in her family. Be three times less likely to become HIV-positive. Have fewer, healthier children who are 40 percent more likely to live past the age of five. See also:
