“Not one girl has said to me, I don’t want an education, I want to stay at home, I want to look after the cattle. Every single girl I meet wants to go to school. And that is my biggest source of hope.”
There are more girls not in school in India than in any other country in the world. Despite national goals to educate all children, communities in remote and rural areas still do not place a high value on educating their girls, nor do they have resources to do so.
