Title:
Educating girls - BBC News
Description:

There are estimated to be three million girls aged 10-14 not in school in India. According to Unicef, India has more child brides than any other country.
Nearly half of all living Indian women were married below the official legal age of 18. Educate Girls runs teams of volunteers which go into villages finding every girl who is not in school.
They talk to families about the importance of sending girls to school and draw up a plan with the community to enrol them.
So far they have helped millions of children and been responsible for enrolling 150,000 girls at school.
