Programs: Girl International Resource Learning education program.

In 2000, a series of studies by United Nations International Children Education Fund (UNICEF) and the United Nations began to examine the effects of educating young girls on the overall health and sustainable growth of developing countries. Their findings repeatedly showed that “investments in girls’ education – particularly those directed to the quality of education – benefit all children, including boys.” Thus, targeted, equally accessible, and a gender-conscious approach to education categorically produces a stronger and more sustainable result than any gender-neutral approach.
