aLL gIRLs SHOULD BE FREE TO DREAM AND FREE TO LEAD. IT'S TIME FOR GIRLs TO TAKE OVER.
At Plan International we believe girls shouldn’t be discriminated against just for being girls. Our programs on education, rights protection and economic empowerment focus on giving girls an equal opportunity to boys and tackle the real issues girls and young women face as a daily reality.
Show your support and help us create a better world for girls. You can help on our programs such as:
Cameroun: Access to a quality primary education and gender equity sessions for 6000 girls in the poor area of Yaoundé
India: Access to economic empowerment through relevant vocational trainings for 1500 women (Saksham: entrepreneurship and access to job market) Watch Saksham program (Click here)
Cameroun-Senegal-Togo: Gender equity sessions among communities (youth, school boards, parents) in order to fight against gender violence at school
"Let us not forget that in still too many places, women remain deprived of basic rights -- the right to live, with millions of “missing girls” in Asia; or to live with dignity, denied to the thousands of victims of sexual assault, of slavery as a war tactic, or of forced prostitution; and finally, the right to learn. Let me pay tribute here to all the “Malalas” of the world. With only one small portion of their courage, we could change the world. Let’s do it.”
