CARE's Lower Secondary Community-based Education for Girls project is providing rural Afghan girls with a long-denied opportunity to continue their education beyond sixth grade. In addition to completing their required coursework, girls also learn vocational skills such as teaching and health education, so that they can either find employment or continue their studies once they graduate from the CARE-supported schools. Watch how CARE is working with local community leaders, parents, teachers and students to challenge traditional beliefs that limit girls' education in Afghanistan.

In many countries around the world, girls are socialized to be wives and mothers. Their education isn't prioritized and they aren't allowed to express their opinions in public places, or even leave their homes without permission. Often, these girls are married by the time they're 12 or 14, and are expected to start having children at the age of 16. But thanks to CARE's work in girls education, these perceptions are changing around the world. Learn more at http://www.CARE.org.

Little research has been done to understand how investments in girls impact economic growth and the health and the well being of communities. This lack of data reveals how pervasively girls have been overlooked. For millions of girls across the developing world, there are no systems to record their birth, their citizenship, or even their identity. However, the existing research suggests their impact can reach much farther than expected. Visit http://www.care.org/ to learn more and find out how you can get involved.
