01:36 Oct 8 2012 City of Brussels, Belgium

This publication produced by Plan International's EU Office, for the European Week of Action for Girls and first ever International Day of the Girl Child on Thursday 11 October, contains an interview with EU Commissioner Kristalina Georgieva on girls living in ‘an increasingly fragile world’.

“Education makes the difference
between the capacity to be independent,
to hold your life in your hands and make
decisions for yourself, and not having it.
My message to the women in Congo, in
the Sahel, everywhere is: send your girls
to school. This is the best you can do for
their future.”
Kristalina Georgieva , European Commissioner for
International Cooperation , Humanitarian Aid and
Crisis Response
