#GirlsCount invites you to count each of the 130 million girls who don’t have access to education

  |   SUN Civil Society Network

130 million girls didn’t go to school today. A new campaign from ONE aims to make that massive number mean something more than a statistic.

Not because they didn’t want to, but because they weren’t given the chance. They are denied an education for a variety of reasons, from cultural norms and costs, to violence and extremism. The result is that these 130 million girls don’t have a fair chance to live a decent and productive life, and the entire world misses out by not benefiting from their potential.

#GirlsCount aims to sound the alarm to elected officials and push them to mobilize resources and support key policy reforms that get these girls in school.

GET INVOLVED

If you believe ALL #GirlsCount, claim a number and film yourself counting it out loud for our elected officials to hear and see.
