Youth activism

Young people must have the opportunity to lead change within their own communities. We seek ways to enable vulnerable children to understand and defend their rights.

Across the world girls suffer injustices every day simply because they are young and female. We aim to help the girls’ rights movement to grow, to take it from grassroots to global, so girls have greater control in their lives.  

We encourage boys and young men to respect girls and women, and empower them to become allies to the global girls’ rights movement.
