Welcome back! Now that the UN General Assembly is over (you can learn more about we did by clicking here) let's get back to business. Last month we covered a lot in terms of Financing and Partnerships, from young people working with the private sector to how business can empower women in global value chains. If you feel like you missed out on some content, don’t worry. You can find it all here, or you can subscribe to our Deliver for Good newsletter for exclusive content at the end of each month.
This month's theme is girls' education, so let’s start out with a fact. Globally, 62 million girls between the ages of six and 15 are not in school. Why? In addition to cultural norms that don’t prioritize education for females, girls face many barriers when it comes to getting the education they are entitled to. Lack of safe transportation, high enrollment fees, and a shortage of sanitary facilities are just a few examples of hurdles that hold girls back.
Women Deliver focuses on solutions, and that’s exactly what you’ll find below. Read our Q&A with a small NGO working to ensure that girls in Madagascar make it to secondary school. Use our infographics and shareable images to advocate for the #62milliongirls left behind. Celebrate the outstanding people paving the way for a world in which all girls have access to the education they deserve.
