Bhakti Chai is proud to support Girls Education International because we believe investing in women and girls is the way to change the world!
An extra year of secondary school boosts girls’ wages by 15% to 25%.
Girls who stay in school for seven or more years marry four years later and have two fewer children.
When girls and women earn income, they reinvest 90% of it in their families and communities.
“Investment in girls’ education may well be the highest-return investment available in the developing world.”
