Keep Girls in the Picture
The Girls Most Likely to... Beat Poverty
What does a girl’s education have to do with fighting poverty?
Millions of girls are out of school in the developing world. Violence, hunger, child marriage, conflict or simply the belief that girls aren’t worth teaching are barriers that keep them from getting an education.
And so their futures fade away.
At CARE, we're helping girls get a lifesaving education. Girls who, if featured in a school yearbook, will no longer be voted Girl Most Likely to Live in Poverty, but Girl Most Likely to Determine Her Own Future.
Join us. Fight to keep girls in the picture.
