As “The Girl Effect” so aptly describes, educating girls makes a big difference to society in the long run:
* When a girl in the developing world receives seven or more years of education, she marries four years later and has 2.2 fewer children.
* An extra year of primary school boosts girls’ eventual wages by 10 to 20 percent. An extra year of secondary school: 15 to 25 percent.
* A higher level of schooling among mothers leads to better infant and child health.
Trust in Education is all about giving the girls (and boys) in Afghanistan a chance.
