Keep Girls in School

The economic benefits of girls’ education are substantial and can help lift households, communities and nations out of poverty. Keeping girls in secondary school could:

  • Add $92 billion to the economies of low and middle-income nations;
  • Cut child deaths by 50 percent;
  • Reduce child marriage by 66 percent;
  • Decrease violent conflict by 37 percent; and
  • Increase girls’ future wages by up to 20 percent for every year enrolled.

​The Keeping Girls in School Act passed the House in January 2020. Contact your Senator today and ask them to support S.1071.
