Advancing children’s rights
and equality for girls

All girls have equal power.
Help them gain equal opportunity

Girls have the power to change the world,
but they need your support

Around the world, girls face unique barriers to survival and development, simply because they are girls. Yet all girls have the right to access equal opportunity.

For only $28 a month, less than $1 a day, you can help girls unleash their inherent power and pursue better futures.
