When you educate a girl you break the vicious cycle of poverty. Girls supported with equipment, money for resources and tutoring and coaching will be much more likely to complete high school and undertake further education after school. A girl will earn up to 25% more income for each year of additional education. She is more likely to invest in her children’s education and wellbeing and support their studies. The education and success of girls will lead to a more prosperous and responsible society. It will also stimulate economic growth. The education can raise families out of poverty, and accelerate economic development. It has a multiplier effect like no other. The work that the Harding Miller Education Foundation does is part of a community working toward the success of three of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals. Find out more here.
