COVID-19: Girls in crisis
COVID-19 has set us all back in countless ways. But for girls in crisis across the world, it’s done more than just set them back. It’s unravelling decades of progress. Keeping girls from getting an education. From protecting themselves. From accessing basic sanitation and vital healthcare.
It’s keeping girls from choosing what happens to their own bodies and from enjoying equal rights. It’s keeping girls from everything they've worked so hard for.
Let's stand with girls in crisis.
Together, we can stop the setback
We need to get girls back into school. We must protect vulnerable children from violence. We must provide essential health services to girls, and help the most vulnerable to access basic hygiene. We must prevent girls being forced to marry as a result of poverty.
Plan International is committed to raising €100million to keep children safe
Plan International aims to stop this setback for vulnerable children worldwide, directly supporting 20 million people – especially girls and young women. Plan International's response will reach more than 50,000 communities across 52 countries.
