There’s no denying that 2023 was a difficult year for gender equality. Natural disasters, war, migration, inflation and a global hunger crisis exacerbated the challenges that girls and their communities were already facing. 

But it is during our most challenging times that we have the opportunity for the greatest acts of kindness. This year, we came together to let girls know that they are seen, that they will not be left behind and that hope is not lost.

And, this December, Plan USA celebrated the end of our five-year We Are the Girls campaign. Thanks to the support of donors like you, we impacted the lives of 15.5 million people and exceeded our goal to raise $200 million in support of projects designed for and with girls. 

To celebrate the end of the campaign and help you feel inspired for all that you’ve accomplished — and all that we can accomplish together in the year to come — here are 13 photos illustrating a small slice of the impact you made for girls and communities in 2023 and beyond.



Your support gives us hope and inspires us to work harder every day. We look forward to all of the positive change we will create together with girl leaders in 2024!
