rewrite their future
I want to stop the setback and support girls to rewrite their own futures.
Help girls rewrite their future
For millions of girls around the world, the future is already written.
They’ll be forced into marriage.
They won’t finish school, even once classes restart after the pandemic.
They’ll experience violence, and maybe even female genital mutilation.
They won’t have access to sexual and reproductive health education and services, making unplanned pregnancy more likely — and more deadly.
They’ll get sick without access to clean water, struggling to manage their periods each month.
And they won’t know what it’s like to write your own story, or chase your own dreams.
COVID-19 is setting back decades of progress for gender equality. Child marriage, trafficking and gender-based violence are all skyrocketing. Girls’ futures are being destroyed.
And time is running out. Every three seconds, a girl drops out of school. In the next hour, 1,583 girls will become pregnant unintentionally because they’ve lost health care. By the end of the day, 33,000 girls will be forced to throw away their futures and get married.
It doesn’t have to be this way. You can stop the setback and help girls rewrite their futures right now.
Will you help girls rewrite their futures today?
WILL YOU HELP GIRLS REWRITE THEIR FUTURES TODAY?
STAND WITH GIRLS LIKE MARIE
Marie, 15, refused to undergo the harmful practice of female genital mutilation (FGM) – despite her own mother being a practitioner.
“In the past, girls wouldn’t be allowed to speak out in public very much. But now, things are changing.”
Thanks to supporters like you, Marie feels empowered to fight against FGM, child marriage and teenage pregnancy, after participating in Plan International’s My Sexuality My Right project.
Plan International’s projects are working globally to support girls and young women to fight for their rights and their futures. And we are stronger together.
Because right now 200 million girls are living with the traumatising and painful consequences of FGM.
