Because I am a Girl campaing

‘Because I am a Girl’ is one of the central campaigns conducted by Plan International. Fighting gender inequality, promoting girls' rights and lifting millions of girls out of poverty constitutes the heart of the campaign.

Over 500 million adolescent girls and young women in developing countries who could play a crucial part in the next generation’s economic and social development, does not because of the lack of opportunities for education or worthwhile economic activity.

Annually published report - ‘Because I am a Girl: The State of the World’s Girls’ – focusing on girls in the global economy warns that failing to send girls to school is costing the world’s poorest countries billions of dollars each year. No education means girls are confined to dangerous, unskilled work - neglecting their earning potential and slowing a country’s recovery from the current financial crisis.

The campaign brings attention to the need of investing early in girls’ education and meaningful work opportunities to ensure a more prosperous and equitable society. It’s in everyone’s interest to invest in girls.

By joining the campaing you help bring hope to the millions of young girls.
