Gender inequality in education undermines human productivity and welfare, as well as development and growth overall. To achieve gender equality, it is essential to invest in human development and education. Educating girls is one of the best ways not only to improve gender equality, but also to promote economic growth and the healthy development of families, communities, and nations. The World Bank Group is funding projects to help close gender gaps in education.
