Help girls rewrite their futures #stopthesetback

 

Stop the clock. Stop the Setback.

For millions of girls around the world, the future is already written. They’ll be forced into marriage.

They won’t finish school, even once classes restart after the pandemic. They’ll experience violence, and maybe even female genital mutilation. They won’t have access to sexual and reproductive health education and services, making unplanned pregnancy more likely — and more deadly. They’ll get sick without access to clean water, struggling to manage their periods each month. And they won’t know what it’s like to write your own story, or chase your own dreams.

COVID-19 is setting back decades of progress for gender equality. Child marriage, trafficking and gender-based violence are all skyrocketing. Girls’ futures are being destroyed.

You can stop the setback and help girls rewrite their futures right now. With your donation, you can tell girls that their futures are theirs to decide.
