Studies show that girls who are educated earn higher salaries
and sending more girls to school and into the workforce can
10 to 20 percent more for each additional year of secondary school
boost an entire country's GDP.
Educated girls also marry later,
have lower rates of infant and maternal mortality
and are more likely to immunize their children
and less likely to contract malaria and HIV.
