The 'Girl Effect'

Today I came across an organisation called The Girl Effect.  Whilst I haven't dug into their website to find out what they actually do, I was very struck by their promotional video.  Watch it and learn what a difference it makes in developing countries whether or not girls receive education.  And then watch these videos in which five girls from Ethiopia, India and Bangladesh describe their lives and their dreams for the future.  I found them both inspiring and sobering.
