- Because I am a Girl
Because I am a Girl
Why girls? Given chance, girls can change the world
Globally, 1 in 5 girls around the world is denied an education by the daily realities of poverty, violence and discrimination. Every day, girls are taken out of school, married far too young, and subjected to violence in school. Not only is this unjust, it’s also a huge waste of potential with serious global consequences.
Plan International’s Because I am a Girl campaign aims to support millions of girls to get the education, skills and support they need to transform their lives and the world around them. Supporting girls’ education is one of the single best investments we can make to help end poverty.
What you can do
To make communities better and equal environment by extending girls potentials.
To protect girls from risks they face and empower them to be more independent.
