Use your power to power change for girls

Every day, millions of girls around the world are denied their basic human rights – simply because they're girls. When you support the Because I am a Girl project, you join a growing movement of fellow Canadians who are committed to protecting and promoting girls’ rights everywhere.

Your generous monthly contributions will be 4x matched by our funding partners – meaning your support will reach 4X more girls around the world, for 4X the impact.

To gain equal rights, girls need allies like you
