Break the Silence: Stop Violence Against Women and Girls in Colombia!

If we don't speak up for girls, who will?

In Colombia, gender-based violence and sexual exploitation are big issues that are little spoken of.

Children and youth who've been displaced by poverty or civil unrest are all too easily be lured into the sex trade in tourist centres, and girls and women face regular threats to their safety. And still, too many people remain quiet in the face of violence and heartbreak.

It's time to end the silence and to give girls and young women hope for the bright future they deserve.

Through Plan Canada's Because I am a Girl project, Plan is encouraging the people of Colombia to raise their voices and shatter the stigma surrounding these important issues.

Together we can help open dialogue, inform adolescents of their rights, empower them to foster awareness, and help break the cycle of violence.

Add your name today and help break the silence and empower girls in Colombia and around the world!
