Will you help protect the most important years of a girl’s life?
Childhood is a time of joy and anticipation. It’s the time when we can be free to play and to dream, knowing that the future is ahead of us, full of possibilities.
This is what childhood should be. But right now, thousands of girls like 11-year-old Amal are facing a very different reality.
At a very young age, Amal lost her father and fled the war in her home country of Syria. She left behind everything she knew and loved because she wasn’t safe. But her challenges are still not over.
For the past seven years, she’s lived in a makeshift tent on a muddy hillside with her sick mother and six siblings in Lebanon. Like many girls where she lives, Amal doesn’t go to school, and doesn’t know how to read or write.
Amal has lived in what should have been temporary accommodation for the majority of her life. And as she gets older, she faces new dangers like child marriage, exploitation, child labour, harassment and gender-based violence.
Girls like Amal are brave, resilient and determined. They want to go to school, get an education and build a better life for themselves and their families. And you can support them.
