Girls and young women are the most excluded group in the world.
To bring attention to the inequalities, injustices, and discrimination girls face around the world on a daily basis, the United Nations dedicated October 11 as International Day of the Girl five years ago.
Plan International USA has been a leader on International Day of the Girl – and every day. The Because I am a Girl movement highlights the fact that when a girl is empowered, she WILL learn, lead, decide, and thrive!
The movement is built on the support of donors and people who are doing simple, easy things to empower girls all over the world.
Here are five ways you can join the movement and empower a girl:
1. Wear a Message of Empowerment
With a generous gift to the Because I am a Girl Fund, you will have the opportunity to download a #SheWill bracelet and share your message of encouragement with girls around the world.
Your support for Because I am a Girl is critical to millions of girls who are – right now – denied the basic human rights to learn, lead, decide, and thrive.
