Why? The coun­try has since fallen from the ranks of best coun­try in the world for women, but it’s still in the run­ning as one of the bet­ter coun­tries.

The money will be used to fund projects that pro­vide sex ed­u­ca­tion, prevent sex­ual vi­o­lence, fe­male gen­i­tal mu­ti­la­tion, and women’s rights.
