Today, girls still face discrimination in many parts of the world simply because they are girls. Too often they lose out on adequate health care, an education, and a bright future simply because of their gender.
There is an urgent need to stand up for the rights of millions of girls.
Plan Canada's Because I am a Girl initiative successfully led a campaign to declare the International Day of the Girl. Now this day gives us a powerful way to highlight the particular needs and rights of girls. And by participating, you can advocate for girls around the world to reach their full potential.
The truth is: investing in and supporting girls is one of the best ways to help our global community. By ensuring girls have access to their basic human rights, we'll help them attain the tools they need to create a better life for themselves and lift their communities and nations out of poverty.
If you believe all girls should enjoy their basic human rights and a bright future, add your name today and help us spread the word about International Day of the Girl!
