To be educated means…
‘I will not only be able to help myself, but also my family, my country, my people. The benefits will be many.’

Today’s girl is tomorrow’s woman and education is her basic right. Educating girls is one of the most important investments that any country can make in its own future. Women are at the heart of our societies. Regardless of whether they are working outside or at home, mothers are very influential people in children’s lives. Education has a profound effect on girl’s ability to claim other rights and achieve high status in society, such as Socio-economic independence and political representation. Education increases woman’s chances of finding well-paid work, raising a good family and hence a great society. Education, which produces human capital for a nation, is a crucial step in overcoming poverty and raising the standard of living. The economic beneﬁts of educating females are enormous. Educating a girl is one of the best investments her family, community, and country can make. Without educating girls you cannot think of a nation to develop as women are the mothers who write the future of a generation. Not only this but educating a girl has many other aspects like her personal grooming and her contribution to support her family, nation and its development.
