Every girl has the right to an education. Too often, families can’t afford to keep their daughters in school and feel compelled to consider early marriage. Staying in school delays marriage and childbirth, and provides girls with an opportunity to become self-sufficient. Books, learning materials, and access to education allow two girls to pursue their dreams.
