International Program

eGirl Power's international program raises awareness of the importance of girls' education in developing countries.

Girls' Education in Developing Countries


Kyra is 7. She lives in rural India and by this early age, she’s beaten a lot of odds.

Her birth was most likely unassisted, she was probably malnourished in her first years of life and chances are she has not had access to sanitation, exposing her to different types of fatal diseases.

But Kyra now has a new challenge ahead of her: to attend primary and secondary schools. This might seem like a simple step for girls in the US, but not for Kyra.

Education is a human right but chances are, she might become one out of the 62 million girls in the world who are out of school.

62 million.

For perspective, that is the number of all of US children up to the age of 14.

Being out of school not only means becoming an illiterate adult, but for girls it means a lot more. Girls who don’t attend primary and secondary schools are much more likely to be forced into child marriage and child labor, thus perpetuating their poverty condition. It is the loss of hope for a dignified future not only for themselves, but also for generations to come.

This is why education is such a powerful tool.

By giving every girl access to education we could prevent 100,000 deaths by childbirth; 3 million child deaths; 10 million child marriages; and 100 million girls from being involved in child labor.


Education can change the future of millions of girls.

Help them rewrite their future.




Educated women are healthier, have fewer children, provide better health care to their children, and are more likely to send their children to school.

Educate Girls in Developing Countries


Every year of school increases a girl's earning power by 10 to 20 percent. The return on secondary education is even higher, up to 15 to 25 percent.

Empower Girls


Education is a human right, but there are 62 million girls out of school around the world. We exist to help impoverished girls in developing countries go to school.

STOP Child Marriages

If all girls had a primary education, there would be 14% fewer child marriages. If all girls had a secondary education, there would be two-thirds fewer child marriages.

Educating girls lessens child marriages

END Child Labor & Trafficking

An estimated 100 million girls are involved in child labor, with many exposed to extreme exploitation including slavery, bonded labor and human trafficking.

End Child Labor

LIFT Girls Out of Poverty

In developing countries, 116 million young women ages 15-24 never completed primary schools and therefore lack vital skills for work.
