We were struck by this Time magazine article, and we weren’t the only ones. It has been distributed, shared and posted all over the web. The article tells us “If you want to fight poverty, fuel growth and combat extremism, try girl power.”
The article describes girls as one of this world’s most powerful potential resources, and remarks that focusing on their education will change the world in ways unmatched by what many assume are more obvious global changes.
Our favorite quote? From Larry Summers
“Investment in girls may well be the highest-return investment available in the developing world.”
