Why ed­u­ca­tion mat­ters

Finweek English Edition - - CONTEXT -

Ed­u­cat­ing women and girls is a driv­ing force against poverty world­wide and is the key to em­pow­ered so­ci­eties and strong economies. When women and girls have equal ac­cess to ed­u­ca­tion, they can make more in­formed de­ci­sions within their home and their com­mu­ni­ties, make health­ier choices for them­selves and their fam­ily, and have in­creased op­por­tu­ni­ties to­wards sta­ble and gain­ful em­ploy­ment.
