We’re working for 12 years of free,
safe, quality education for every girl.

We advocate — at local, national and international levels — for resources
and policy changes needed to give all girls a secondary education.

Here’s how.

Meeting with leaders

We meet with heads of state and high-level officials — people with the power to shift critical resources towards education — and ask them to increase their investment in girls’ futures.
