Ask African leaders to fight for girls' education

African leaders have the power to increase investments in education, employment and empowerment and make sure every girl gets the chance to go to school and learn. It’s an opportunity to transform the future of the entire continent. But if they do nothing, even more girls will be left behind.

Poverty is sexist — it hits girls and women hardest. But educate a girl from a poor community, and it can dramatically improve her health, wealth, and potential. She’s less likely to become a child bride, contract diseases like HIV, or die young. And she could help lift her family — and her entire country — out of poverty.

If you believe all girls count, add your name and tell African leaders to act now.
Dear African leaders,

I am counting on you to increase investment in education, employment and empowerment so that all children across Africa, especially girls, get the chance to reach their full potential. I believe girls count - I hope you do too.

Thanks,

[Your name]
