More girls than boys will never attend school in Southeast Asia
Barriers to education are higher for girls than for boys. And poorer children are less likely to go to school than their peers from richer families. 81% girls compared to 42% boys.
The poorest girls remain the most likely to never set foot in a classroom. Without an education, employment opportunities are limited…leading to generational poverty. The cycle of poverty is the greatest contributor of child abandonment in the world.
RW is committed to supporting educational opportunities for girls and poor children in Southeast Asia. Our company’s ability to sponsors schools and educational grants for abandoned and at risk children is solely because of the hard work each of you does every day!
