In Mozambique, investing in girls' education and leadership training.
In Mozambique, one of the poorest countries in the world, 58% of the population is under 19. Although 94% of girls go through primary school, only 24% continue with secondary school, 10% complete secondary and only 1% of girls go to university. Almost half of the girls (48%) get married and have their first child (40%) before the age of 18 and Mozambican girls have 70% probability of becoming single parents and household providers before 35. This is the cycle of planned poverty.
