Bridging the dream gap

Every girl has the power and potential to become whatever she wants. Yet many girls face a “dream gap” – a complex combination of barriers that deny or impede girls from achieving their dreams

By declaring that #GirlsBelongHere, we can all play a part in removing the barriers that deny girls their rights to thrive and succeed!

Spread the Word

Follow us on social media and show the world that #GirlsBelonghere.
