From Haiti to Siberia and everywhere we go, PIH is committed to empowering women. And every day, we see the same thing: When women are strong and healthy, everyone wins.

In honor of International Women's Day, we offer this three-question quiz. Test your knowledge and you'll unlock 50 cents to empower women in some of the world's poorest communities.

(1) Educating girls leads to prosperity and improves health for the whole family. Just ONE more year in school yields how much additional income per year?

Yep!

It's incredible—just one more year of education can mean 20% more income annually. That's why PIH supports training and education for girls and women—from elementary schools in Cange, Haiti, to university-level medical education and training—all around the world.

Believe it or not, it's even more.

Just one more year of education can mean 20% more income annually. So across PIH sites, we help support training and education for girls and women—from the PIH-supported elementary schools in Cange, Haiti, to medical education and training around the world.

2. Globally, 72% of all men are employed. What's the percentage for women?

Unfortunately, you're right.

Fewer than half of all women worldwide are employed. That's why across 10 nations, PIH prioritizes hiring and training women to be community health workers, nurses, doctors and more. In fact, we're among the largest employers of women in the communities we serve!

3. Family planning leads to less poverty, healthier children, and safer moms. But around the world, how many women can't access contraception?

You got it.

225 million women—the vast majority from the world's poorest nations—lack access to contraception, which impacts their ability to earn money, pursue education, and nourish their children.

That takes a heavy toll on women, their families—and the economy. In fact, every $1 spent on contraception saves $4 in other expenses, from health care to sanitation and services.

Not quite.
