When a child has access to education, they can do anything.
260 million children around the world never attend school.1
That means roughly 1 in 5 children are more vulnerable to experience issues like poverty, hunger, and forced labor — with little opportunity to escape. Worse, a lack of quality education prevents kids from building a better life for themselves and their communities.
But education empowers children with the vision, insight, and confidence to bring their Dreams to life — it changes absolutely everything.
Education changes absolutely everything.
The case for education couldn't be any clearer. When we invest in education, we're reimagining what's possible. Join forces with us so we can create a better world and support our future leaders.
Limited educational opportunities for girls cost countries up to $30 trillion in lost lifetime productivity & earnings.2
When girls get education, they can earn higher incomes, are more informed about nutrition and health, and raise healthier children.
Every $1 invested in education can bring an increase of $5–$10 in earnings and health benefits.3
Access to education is a powerful investment; by creating significant economic returns, education helps communities progress and drives the future forward.
Education is the foundation of health and well-being — so much that it saves lives.
Between 1970 and 2010, learning prevented more than 130 million deaths by reducing infant mortality and encouraging lifelong healthy behaviors.4
By increasing access to education, we create a better future for all of us.
An educated society fuels progress and heightens creativity, and promotes peace, which translates into a better quality of life for everyone.5
