Send A Girl To School For A Year in East Timor
COST - $70
For young girls in developing countries, there is no gift more powerful than that of an education. CARE’s education programs provide children in some of the world’s poorest countries with access to teachers, school materials, a safe learning environment and a solid meal to help their young minds grow and develop.
- For every year a girl spends in school she raises her family income by up to 20 percent
- Educated girls grow into educated women, who have healthier babies and are more likely to educate their children
- When a girl in the developing world receives seven years of education, she marries four years later and has 2.2 fewer children
