Bridge the gap so all girls are equal from the start
Here we are in 2020, and still, girls face discrimination. Save the Children puts gender equality at the heart of everything we do – including our work to eliminate gender-based violence, empower girls and reduce child marriage so that all children have equal opportunities. So, walk with us. Sign a petition. Or join the movement and use your voice to help girls realize the futures they deserve.
WHAT DOES SAVE THE CHILDREN DO FOR GIRLS?
We start at the beginning – right from birth, giving children a healthy start. We help school-age girls go to school (and stay in school!) delaying marriage and pregnancy, and helping them acquire much-needed life skills. We work with boys, men and parents, to fight gender bias in families. Plus, we empower girls to speak up and challenge norms that discriminate based on gender. Since 2000, we have helped achieve a 25% decline in child marriage – empowering 11 million girls to stay in school. Learn more
