84% of girls do not go on to secondary school.
57.7% of girls marry before the age of 18, because it's not easy for a girl to go to school when she is poor, when her family needs her to work, and expects her to marry young.
When girls are able to stay in school and delay marriage and childbirth, their children are better educated, their families are healthier, their communities are safer, and their countries are enriched.

If every Ethiopian girl finished secondary school, they would add almost $4 billion to the country's economy.
REAL empowers girls to stay in school while helping their families financially, strengthening their local
community, and contributing to their nation.
It's time to get REAL.
