Samra and Nick are the perfect proof that there is still good people willing to volunteer to make this world a better place.
I met both of them on the Yonge Street, and they asked me if they can talk to me.. They are spreading awareness for Because I’m a girl.
Because I am a Girl is Plan’s global initiative to break the cycle of poverty and gender discrimination. Plan is a global movement for change, mobilizing millions of people around the world to support social justice for children in developing countries, and especially supporting and providing the education and skills for girls who need to move themselves from poverty to opportunity.
Girls in the poorest regions of the world are among the most disadvantaged people on the planet. They are more likely to live in poverty, more likely to be denied access to education, and more likely to be malnourished, simply because they are young and female.
And yet, studies show that when you invest in girls, the whole world benefits. If a girl has enough to eat, a safe environment, and an education, she’ll work to raise the standard of living for herself, her family and her community. And in time, she can even strengthen the economy of her entire country.
Learn more about the unique barriers girls face around the world, but also about the incredible power they have to change the future for everyone.
