How a 12-year-old girl can change the world - The Girl Effect

The Girl Effect is a worldwide campaign that encourages development through increasing women's rights. If you keep a girl in school and giver her economic rights and opportunities, you can help her to:
=> marry when she is ready,
=> have babies when she is older,
=> survive childbirth,
=> have fewer children, and therefore help reduce overpopulation,
=> support her family and avoid prostitution,
=> avoid HIV and therefore stop its spread.
The girl effect is a ripple effect. Watch the video to find out! Visit the Girl Effect homepage:
