Help make sure no girl is left behind.
When girls everywhere can safely manage their periods and be free of the stigma surrounding menstruation, we can ensure their human rights, health and dignity. More than a year on since the start of the pandemic, girls, women and people who menstruate around the world are facing even more serious challenges when it comes to managing their periods.
With more than 80 years of experience, Plan International Australia is expertly placed to respond to global crises, and we’re supporting and protecting the most vulnerable children around the world – especially girls.
Girls and women around the world are facing unique challenges and inequalities.
We know from our experience responding to the COVID-19 global pandemic, that in times of crises, girls face a much higher risk of being pulled from school permanently. And when girls were isolated at home, rates of sexual violence, teenage pregnancy, trafficking, child labour and child marriage increase dramatically.
But girls hold immense power and potential to create very real change.
When girls are educated and supported – their entire family and community benefits, including boys and men. By making sure girls aren’t left behind in a crisis like COVID-19, we’re helping to create an equal world – a world where girls can take their rightful place as equals.
