When Education Is a Privilege

In many countries, schooling isn't similarly available or encouraged for both boys and girls. Research shows that girls in India are much less likely to get an education than boys (see chart, below). By the time girls in India reach high school, only 34% of them are still in school.1

We want to defy the stats when it comes to education for our daughters! They are given every opportunity to attend school and to excel so they can pursue college degrees.

To help change the stats for India's future generations, consider giving to our College Dreams Project.
