Mandy Moore Takes Over ONE.org’s Blog in October
“A healthy, educated woman reinvests 90 percent of her income in her family and community compared to only 35 percent for a man,” says PSI Global Ambassador Mandy Moore on ONE.org, kicking off her month-long curation of the organization’s blog. “Each additional year of secondary school can increase a woman’s earnings by 10 to 20 percent, and that increase yields real profits for the countries they live in. When 10 percent more women in a country complete secondary education, the country’s annual per capita income grows by 3 percent.”
Mandy talks about her recent trip to India and how she saw this in action. See her picks throughout the month for stories, articles and organizations that prove why investing in women and girls makes economic sense.
