Advancing children’s rights
and equality for girls


Stop the clock. Stop the Setback.

COVID-19 continues to unravel decades of hard-fought progress for girls’ rights – and the longer they go without support, the worse it gets. Confinement to their homes, removal from education, disruption of social and protective networks, combined with decreased access to services, is setting back the progress of millions of girls in crisis.

Every single minute, more are forced to quit school, to become child brides, to endure violence, to undergo female genital mutilation (FGM), or to have children while they are still children themselves. Help us stop the clock and Stop the Setback for girls, before it’s too late. You can help girls access the supports they need take back control of their lives, go back to school, live free from violence and decide their own futures.
