Each day, millions of girls around the world can’t step into a classroom. Instead, neglect, abuse, and poverty create seemingly insurmountable barriers to their education, resulting in about 496 million women who can’t read and write today.

World Vision works in nearly 100 countries to help girls overcome these barriers so they can attend school, improve their lives, and help advance their communities. Through photos, travel around the globe to see how World Vision has helped girls overcome the obstacles they face to education.

    It would be great if these photos and captions could be turned into posters that could be used with future Girl Rising screenings to show what sponsorship through World Vision can do!
