Studies show that when girls are educated, literacy rates increase, family size decreases, and families are better-fed and nourished. Educating girls is a key to better lives in your community. 

Consider producing programs that show the different ways that families can benefit when daughters are educated. For example, a short drama could illustrate how a young girl helps on the farm by reading the instructions on pesticide and fertilizer containers. Another could portray a girl who contributes income to the family because she is able to get good employment thanks to her education. 

The following script features a young girl who cares for her sick brother with the knowledge of health and nutrition that she gained from going to school.
