Girls are powerful. When they’re educated, healthy, and safe, they transform their communities. When girls stand up for girls in need, they empower each other and transform our world. As the United Nations Foundation’s adolescent girl campaign, Girl Up engages girls to take action. Led by a community of nearly half a million passionate advocates raising awareness and funds, our efforts help the hardest to reach girls living in places where it is hardest to be a girl.
Girl Up provides financial and other support to the UN through joint UN programs in Ethiopia, Guatemala, Liberia, Malawi. and India. Since 2010, Girl Up has partnered with the United Nations to support programs that give girls an equal chance for education, health, social and economic opportunities, and a life free from violence.
Every person has the potential to make a difference in the life of a girl. Whether you host a fundraiser, raise your voice on an issue, or join our network of Girl Up leaders, the actions you take make a loud statement that girls everywhere matter. What are you waiting for?
