How can the gender education gap be closed in developing countries?
There are many cultural, economic and societal hurdles that girls face when trying to pursue an education in many regions of the world. UNESCO estimates there are 130 million girls between the ages of 6 and 17 out of school worldwide. What can be done to help more girls receive an education in developing countries?

Ending conflict while supporting women in conflict zones

In countries such as Nigeria there is a huge disparity in numbers of girls in education when comparing urban and rural areas. This is more exaggerated in areas where conflict is a common occurrence. Women for Women is a nonprofit charity that seeks to empower women in regions affected by conflict, it does this by providing financing, access to healthcare, business/job skills and networking opportunities.

Providing, supporting or funding education directly

Unquestionably poverty is one of the main facts that stands in the way of education in certain parts of the world, as paying for teachers and learning materials inevitably costs money. Organisations such as The Malala Fund not only invest in schools directly but also place activists and educators in local communities to advocate the importance of access to education for girls. This particular organisation works in some of the worst effected regions of countries such as Nigeria, India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, and with Syrian refugees in Lebanon and Jordan.
