No more child marriages, teenage pregnancies, female genital mutilation or sexual exploitation. Equal opportunities and rights for girls and boys. That is what Plan International is committed to. In more than 50 countries we have projects on protection, youth and employment (including education), WASH (water, sanitation and hygiene) and emergency aid. We pay special attention to girls. Every day, around the world, girls are still disadvantaged and get fewer opportunities. Plan makes extra efforts to improve the position of girls so they can grow into strong, independent women who make decisions about their own lives. Investing in girls is investing in a better future for everyone.
We can’t do that alone. Become a Girls first business partner and invest in a sustainable future for these girls – from € 200 per month.
Eén jaar extra onderwijs voor een meisje.
Geeft haar later 10 – 20 procent meer inkomen.
Van dat inkomen besteedt zij 90 procent aan haar gezin.
Door betere zorg heeft zij gezondere kinderen.
Haar kinderen gaan vaker en langer naar school.
Investing in girls is investing in a better future for everyone!
With each extra year of education, women earn 10-20 percent more – and they spend 90 percent of their income on their families. That means they can provide better care for their children, who in turn can also go to school for longer.
"Because I am a girl ...
... I have dreams. When I grow up I want to become a doctor, or a judge, or perhaps a physicist!” But many girls cannot make their dreams come true. That must change! Gils must be able to get ahead. Plan International ensures that girls are educated and protected from violence, and that they dare to stand up for themselves. In this way they grow into powerful women who can make a difference.
