Advancing children’s rights
and equality for girls

Girl

Education
is her future
child marriage
is not.

Together, we need to protect every girl’s right to an education.

Every child has the right to an education. The right to attend school and have it be a safe environment where they can dream about a bright future of potential and possibilities. But the ongoing crisis around the world is causing millions of girls to miss out on the education they deserve, and every day more children continue to be taken out of school. Without access to education, their opportunities can disappear.

For many girls in developing nations, the current pandemic could result in a permanent end to their education, even when schools reopen, putting their futures at risk. Girls who don’t have the opportunity to stay in school are at higher risk of increased gender-based violence, unplanned pregnancy, trafficking, and child marriage. But you can help. By donating to Plan International Canada, you’re helping fund programs that provides access to education to some of the world’s most vulnerable girls. You’re helping Stop the Setback that children are currently facing. And you’re helping ensure their hopes of a bright future aren’t erased by unjust circumstance or inequality.
