Attend the upcoming Awareness Series event featuring PACE's own Deepa Willingham
38% of girls in developing countries are child brides.
One in seven girls is married before she reaches 15.
A girl with seven or more years of education will delay marriage by four years.
40% of humanity live on less than $2 per day; this includes 1 billion children.
Each year of education above the average earns a woman 10-20% more money.
Women reinvest 90% of their income into their families. Men reinvest 30-40%.
A girl with seven or more years of education will have two fewer children.
One more year of education above average can reduce infant mortality by 5-10%.
One child at a time
Just $1 a day saves a girl's life.
That’s less than a cup of coffee!!
END THE ABUSES WAGED AGAINST VULNERABLE CHILDREN LIVING IN EXTREME POVERTY.
EDUCATE THE GIRL CHILD.
PACE (Promise of Assurance to Children Everywhere) exists to nurture the educational, health, nutritional, social and cultural development of girls in the world's poorest regions.
PACE believes that change begins with girls. The fact that girls suffer greatest in the face of poverty creates an imperative to act. PACE envisions a global community where girls are not prevented from reaching their potential. Instead, they are empowered to change the world.
