Because I am a Girl project
Change the world for girls and their communities.
In the poorest regions of the world, women and girls are among the most disadvantaged people on the planet. Yet they are the key to breaking the cycle of poverty for everyone. It's proven that when we invest in girls, they will give back in countless ways to improve the lives of their families, communities and nations.
Today, your contribution is urgently needed to:
- Register girls at birth in countries like Bangladesh and Mali so that their legal rights to an education, health care and a better life are officially recognized
- Improve the quality of maternal health care to help manage childhood illnesses, encourage safe deliveries of babies provide emergency obstetric care in places like West Africa
- Provide girls in areas like South Sudan with access to clean water, adequate sanitation and food
- Help exploited girls and keep vulnerable girls safe from abuse with prevention programs in conflict areas like Colombia.
