The Power of the Girl Effect

I saw this video today and I think it is pretty incredible! Watch it; check out the website (http://thegirleffect.org); think about the power of girls to change not only their own circumstances, but those of their families, communities and nations. It's incredible that something so simple can be so revolutionary and make so much difference in the lives of those who have the least.

The most shocking fact (check out the fact sheet on the website for more info) was that the leading cause of death worldwide for girls age 15-19 is PREGNANCY. wow.
