Without adequate light, girls miss out on study time, as they normally attend to domestic chores after school, unlike their brothers who do their school assignments immediately when they get home from school, so the girls fall behind in school and are more likely to drop out. Without adequate light, women are hampered in their ability to care and provide for their families as they struggle to cook dinner by the poor light of tadoobas, and spend too much of their time and the family’s income on gathering fuel. 
Investing in women and girls is smart. The return on investment is so great.  When women and girls earn income, they reinvest 90% back into the family, as opposed to only 30% for men. An extra year of primary school boosts girls’ eventual wages by 10 to 20 percent.  An extra year of secondary school boosts girls’ eventual wages by 15 to 25 percent.
