International Day of the Girl
Focus On: Girls' Education
CARE is celebrating the second annual International Day of the Girl by recognizing the life-changing impact an education can have on a girl and her family. When a girl has the opportunity to go to school, it stops poverty in its tracks. An educated girl will earn a greater income, wait until she's ready to marry and have children, and create a healthy, stable household for her and her family. When girls get an education, whole communities thrive and the cycle of poverty is broken.
