Most of the 57 million children around the world who do not attend school are girls. Poverty, child labor, early marriage, war and natural disaster are among the reasons that girls don't get even a basic education...but when they do, it improves their lives and the lives of their families and communities. (For instance, the child of a literate mother has a 50% greater chance of surviving past age 5.) Just $49 can send a girl to school for a year. Will you help?
