The USAID organization has a campaign to help girls worldwide to obtain an education. The program is called "Let Girls Learn." Here in the U.S., we struggle with encouraging girls in math and science, however, children are required to go to school or be home schooled under state guidelines. In other countries, girls are denied an education and many times discouraged from it as a way to "keep them in their place." Young women die fighting for their right for an education. Many young girls are married off to much older men at very young ages without education and without choice. Many suffer from domestic violence, female mutilation and rape as a way of life. Here is a brief commercial about this program, in case you are interested:
