An estimated 66 million children around the world are out of school; most of them girls. Investing in girls’ education is a fundamental to reducing global poverty, yet millions of girls face huge challenges when it comes to accessing educational opportunities.

With 65 years of experience removing barriers to education around the world, CARE Knows How to get girls into school, keep them there, boost their performance in school and equip girls with the tools they need to succeed as adults.

CARE’s #AskTheExpert series invites you to join the conversation about girls’ education. Our expert for this video series will be the Director of Girls’ Education programming for CARE India, Suman Sachdeva. Suman works on a number of different projects in the region including Udaan schools. At CARE-supported Udaan schools, adolescent girls who had either never enrolled or were forced to drop out are given a second chance to learn through an accelerated bridge course.
