A girl is not a statistic or a piece of property. She's a girl who deserves a future.
The world's girls face unique challenges. A girl is far more likely to miss out on school, marry too young and grow up too fast. Her childhood lost. Her life and future at risk. That's why we're doing whatever it takes to ensure girls grow up healthy, learning and safe.
Changing the World of Refugee Girls with Save the Children
The Syrian refugee crisis, now in its sixth year, has had a significant negative impact on education — for Syria's refugee children and children in Jordan's host communities. Girls suffer most. Many girls aren't in school. Many young women can't work to support their families, because they face gender-based barriers that keep them at home and lack the skills and support they need to succeed.
Save the Children and Always believe that education is key to empowering girls and young women, so they remain confident, skilled and strong. Together, we're working in Jordan to provide education and life skills. When girls and women thrive, families are healthier and communities are stronger.

Every Last Child Campaign
Save the Children's Every Last Child campaign aims to reach the most vulnerable children, those left behind by the world's progress in child health, education and protection — including girls. Too many girls, because of who they are or where they're born, face unique challenges. Girls are too often prevented from learning, forced into child marriage and early pregnancy or even coerced and enslaved by human traffickers - their very lives and futures at risk.
Together, we will reach every last girl, empowering her to grow up healthy, educated and safe. Free to lead her own life, speak her mind and determine her future.
