Current rates of progress indicate that we’re still 100 years away from education for all girls.
COVID-19 is left a global education crisis. Millions of students haven’t been able to learn during the pandemic. The gap to bridge socioeconomic inequalities enlarging. Particularly young girls are the least likely to return to the classroom foregoing future possibilities for a better life further threaten girls’ education, health, and well-being.
Nearly 130 million girls were out of school before the pandemic — and now 20 million more girls are at risk of dropping out because of it. Especially, low- and middle-income countries have seen a stagnant in girl's enrolment with nearly 90% of girls not being able to read a single sentence by the age of ten.
Financing girls’ education is one of the best investments we can make in the future peace, prosperity, and sustainability of our planet.
The MALALA FUND has invested over $ 22M in educational programs in over 8 countries.
The power of finance works miracles as MALALA leverages the power of networks rather than schools.
