STAND UP FOR CHILDREN AND GIRLS EVERYWHERE

Humans have rewritten the meaning of possible thousands of times over. Yet we continue to leave millions of children behind — especially girls — and have come to accept this as ‘normal’.

Plan International Canada is calling on all Canadians to Defy Normal: to believe in the power and potential of every child and to take a stand anywhere children are oppressed, exploited or left behind and anywhere girls aren’t equally valued.

Join us. Together we can create a world where all unleash their full potential.
