Education is vital for a girl’s future success. Its surprising how much education impacts nearly every part of her life. One study after another has shown that education is one of the most effective ways to fight poverty. When girls are educated, they marry at an older age, decreasing risky pregnancies and armed with an understanding of the importance of proper nutrition for their children.
When girls and parents are educated about sex trafficking, they are less likely to be deceived by false promises of work, and end up in the sex trade. That in turn reduces sexually transmitted diseases, unwanted pregnancies, and girls experiencing the horrors of trafficking. In fact, education is the number one preventor of sex trafficking in the world.
