In his statement for the 2013 International Day of the Girl UN Secretary-General, Ban Ki-moon said “Empowering girls, ensuring their human rights and addressing the discrimination and violence they face are essential to progress for the whole human family. One of the best ways to achieve all of these goals is to provide girls with the education they deserve.”
