Providing them with access to education is the key to economic and social development.

In the same speech, the Duchess raised the female students up, saying: "When girls are given the right tools to succeed, they can create incredible futures". The service raises money for the Henry van Straubenzee Memorial Fund, a charity named after Harry's friend who passed away in 2002.
