#StandWithAGirl For Education

The Logical Indian

February 22nd, 2016 / 9:08 PM

We all dream of a developed India, with equal opportunities for all. But gender inequality, social discrimination and economic exploitation have affected the education of the girls of India, since more than half of our female population is illiterate. So many of our young girls still dream of going to school but are forced to drop out, give up their childhood and work to support their families. By not providing equal opportunities for our girls to get educated, we fail to utilise almost half of India’s human resource to develop our country. By giving our girls an education, we give them the ability to stand shoulder to shoulder with the people of the world, and we greatly reduce child marriage, dowry, infant mortality and poverty.

#StandWithAGirl and donate to give India’s girls an education that will help them have a successful future.
