WomenOne is a non-profit devoted to creating positive change in the lives of women and girls globally through access to quality education.
62 million girls are out of school globally.
With an extra year of secondary school, a girl can earn 20% more income.
As a result of educating women and girls, 4 million child deaths were prevented in the past 40 years.
“Because, even though there’s an epic amount of work to be done, with 62 million girls without access to schools, Haddon is undeterred. Her work may be “a drop in the ocean,” she says. “But it’s your drop. It’s our drop.”
If all girls had a secondary education, 60% fewer girls under 17 would become pregnant.
A child born to a literate mother is 50% more likely to survive past age 5.
If all women completed primary education, there would be 15% fewer child deaths worldwide.
