By N.F. Mendoza

To celebrate International Day of the Girl today, HP Inc. and Girl Rising have launched a three-year education partnership of curriculum and technology solutions for up to 10 million students and teachers in the US, India and Nigeria.

More than 130 million girls around the world continue to lack access to education, and women account for two thirds of the 750 million adults who lack basic literacy skills. The program announced today is part of HP’s global commitment to enable learning outcomes for 100 million people by 2025.

The new curriculum supports the organizations’ goals to develop the next generation of female leaders by providing educational content, technology, multimedia assets, activities, and lesson plans to students and teachers.
