Educating a Generation of Leaders
What’s Good? This month we’re excited to unveil our refreshed newsletter approach!  Together with Campaign Partners we’re exploring the critical investments needed to Change the Narrative, Mobilize Partners, and Inspire Concrete Action to advance gender equality across the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
And what better way to start than to school you on quality and equitable education for girls and women? The results are in and the evidence proves: Women who are better educated have fewer unplanned children, are less likely to marry early, and are more likely to drive national economic growth. To keep girls in school, we must invest in cross cutting solutions that eliminate harmful gender norms, elevate the voices of girls and women,  and create safe and supportive learning environments.
Join Deliver for Good Campaign Partners in studying up on what it will take to ensure equal learning opportunities for girls and women everywhere.
