Why Girls?

Girls and women around the world are facing unique challenges and inequality due to the COVID-19 crisis.

We know from our experience responding the Ebola outbreak in Western Africa, that in times of crisis 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 this global response to COVID-19, we’re helping to create an equal world – a post-COVID world where girls can take their rightful place as equals.
