We still wonder why educating girls in the developing world is such an important topic… well because not enough is being done about it!

As put by one of two female Presidents in Africa- Ellen Johnson Sirleaf is the president of Liberia and a Nobel Peace Prize winner.

“It is unacceptable that in 2014 — less than a year away from the deadline the international community agreed to get all children into school — that 30 million girls in Africa are denied their basic human right to a quality education. Ensuring that every child goes to school, stays in school and learns something of value while there will require firm commitments and action by governments to invest in education and prioritize the education of its girls.”
