Because I am a Girl Phase One Report

Girls are among the most marginalized groups in the world — facing extra barriers to success in almost every country and culture.

In 2012, Plan launched its Because I am a Girl campaign with the aim of reaching 4 million girls over four years. Because I am a Girl is a broad community-based strategy aimed at ensuring that marginalized girls have the opportunity to reach their full potential.

Our multi-sectorial programs enabled marginalized girls in Burkina Faso, Egypt, El Salvador, Ethiopia, India, Indonesia, Nepal, Sierra Leone, and Vietnam to realize their own power as they transitioned to adulthood. Programs were designed in partnership with the girls, as well as the families, communities, and institutions around them, to address critical gaps in meeting needs and fulfilling rights. This report outlines the progress that has been made with your support to create a cycle of opportunity for millions of girls—and lays the foundation for the ongoing work of Because I am a Girl.
