Launched in September 2018, GirlSuperPower was in response to new data from the United Nations which revealed the number of girls who are out-of-school globally was actually increasing!
Using the voices of our female pupils, the aim was to raise awareness of this statistic — a 6% increase in one year — and call on policymakers to prioritise girls education. Our pupils spoke about what their ‘GirlSuperPower’ was i.e. science, maths or art, and they aspired to an education that would enable them to learn and fulfil their dreams.
Around the world, 131 million girls remain out-of-school and, the number who don’t go to primary school increased from 32 million in 2015 to 34 million in 2016.
