Girls living in poverty are uniquely capable of creating a better future. But when a girl reaches adolescence, she comes to a crossroads. She either get a chance, gets educated, stays healthy and HIV negative, marries when she chooses, raises a healthy family, and has the opportunity to raise the standard of living for herself and those around her. Or not. This engaging video artfully probes deeper into the "girl effect".

    I appreciate the general point but 600 million more cows?!! The international development sector needs to stop exporting our animal-centric diet to the developing world. There might be short term benefits but we're dramatically increasing the demand for animal products in these countries. Very soon, factory farms will plague their countries the way they have devastated ours. Stop supporting the dairy industry!!

    The video very rightly and forcefully argues in favour of the girl born of poor parents. The message is profound and needs vast circulation. Kudos to Karma Tube and thanks too.
