Safe Future for Girls

Early marriage or the marriage of school-aged girls is considered the main barrier to achieving universal primary education and promoting gender equality for girls and boys living in rural communities.

Plan is dedicated to ending this harmful practice, which violates a girl’s rights to a healthy life, to physical integrity, to protection from traditional harmful practices, and to the right of an education.

Your gift to the Safe Future for Girls Project will help end gender discrimination and violence.

With your support, Plan's program in Egypt will:

  • reduce the social pressure that motivates families to practice early marriage
  • provide educational opportunities for out-of-school girls and increase the number of girls completing primary school
  • build girls’ leadership skills, and
  • increase the capacity of community leaders and organizations to design, implement, and support local advocacy and awareness activities that promote and protect girls’ rights
