About It Starts With a Girl:
The It Starts With a Girl initiative provides free education to over 4,000 girls each year, from primary school through college, changing their lives in the process. In rural India, educated women have much higher access to economic opportunities and possess a higher influence in their households and communities. Additionally, educated women are less susceptible to violence, and they are more likely to have access to medical care and a healthy lifestyle.
The It Starts With a Girl initiative was started to break the cycle of poverty for Indian girls – young women who soon will become future mothers and leaders who understand and value the importance of a strong education. The objective is to bring about important social changes by establishing a strong educational foundation for young minds.
