Investing in Young women’s economic empowerment is essential to achieving gender equality. Enabling young women to learn throughout their lives and develop key skills can transform lives, communities, and entire countries.

Empowering women and girls and promoting gender equality are crucial to accelerating sustainable development. Ending all forms of discrimination against women and girls is not only a basic human right, but it also has a multiplier effect across all other development areas.
Young people must have the opportunity to lead change within their communities. When girls, boys, women, and men are empowered with the skills they need for working life, they thrive. They can support themselves, their families, and their communities.
