Education helps all of us to become what we are today. It teaches us to speak up for ourselves. But United States Agency for International Development declares that around the world, more than 62 Million girls (half of whom are adolescents) are denied the right to an education. Women education plays a key role in the social and economic development of the country. The agency also states that uneducated girls are more vulnerable to HIV/AIDS, early and forced marriages and other forms of violence.
Thus, to give 62 Million girls around the world a chance to realize their potential, Michelle Obama introduced an initiative at the 2015 Global Citizen Festival in New York City’s Central Park to impart education to 62 million girls. The First lady has teamed up with Beyonce, Malala, Bano and others to promote the initiative. The new campaign, along with GIRL RISING, is a part of LET GIRLS LEARN, an initiative kicked off by the President and First Lady in March 2015 to provide both economic and social support to the girls they need to stay in school.
Educating a woman uplifts her life as well as the quality of her life and her entire family. According to Michelle Obama, when girl’s aren’t given the chance to realize their skills and abilities, the whole world loses out. Women need to know that their voices matter. The challenge is world-wide, but first year efforts will target 11 countries: Albania, Togo, Mongolia, Cambodia, Georgia, Ghana, Benin, Burkina Faso, Moldova, Mozambique and Uganda.
Educating females lead to the progression and development of the family and the country also.
