Help stop the setback for girls

The ongoing global COVID-19 crisis is threatening to undo years of progress for girls’ education, safety and rights.

Will you help stop the setback?

Right now, girls have hit an unprecedented setback. This global pandemic is quickly eroding the progress we’ve made for girls around the globe.

Knowledge is power, and an education is the most effective tool for a girl to overcome inequality, unlock her potential, and claim her rights. With it, she is less likely to face child marriage or early pregnancy, and more likely to follow her dreams and secure her future.

Without urgent help, girls who have been forced to drop out of school may never return.

Many have lost the one place they can confide in adults about abuse.

And countless girls could be denied their reproductive rights.

Education can change everything. Without it, her dreams and hopes can begin to disappear. With your support, we can help girls stop the setback and secure their futures.

Will you help stop the setback?

Right now, more than 130 million girls are not in school. They are being denied crucial support services that help protect them from gender-based violence, child marriage and the loss of their reproductive rights.

As the charity for girls’ equality, we know that education has the power to change everything.

Don’t take it from us, take it from the girls and young women in our programs around the world.

I like going to school every day. Now, I can write, count, draw, sing and dance.

More and more girls could watch their hopes and dreams of a full education disappear. Will you donate today to help stop the setback?

Together, we can stop the setback and help girls secure their futures

Plan International is committed to stopping the setback – but we need your support to make sure years of progress for girls is not lost.

We’re stopping the setback by:

  • Working with children, families, communities and governments to ensure girls can access quality education
  • Strengthening child protection systems and supporting families to secure their livelihoods so girls are less likely to face child marriage
  • Making sure girls and young women have continued access to sexual and reproductive health information and services.

If we act now, we can prevent this disaster of enormous proportions and help girls secure their futures. Because a better now for her means a better future for everyone. Will you help stop the setback?
