We work with children, youth and families in 12 countries across Latin America and the Caribbean.
Our work in communities focuses on promoting gender equality and supporting children and young people to exercise their rights.
As part of this, we are working to end harmful practices like child marriage and teenage pregnancy, so girls and young women can take the lead in their lives and their communities.
