Our campaigns for girls' rights

Making sure girls are no longer discriminated against

because i am a girl

At Plan International UK we believe that girls shouldn't be discriminated against just for being girls. Our work focuses on giving girls an equal opportunity to boys and our campaigns tackle the real issues that adolescent women and girls face as a daily reality.

So far this year we have campaigned to put an end to child marriage in Malawi and to make cities around the world safer for girls. Girls aren’t weak, they’re brave, and with with our support they can break down the barriers standing in their way. You can be part of this change. 

Whether it’s through signing a petition, sending a tweet or writing to your MP, every action that you take part in will support girls, boys and their communities to say no to the violence and discrimination that girls face every day. Together with every man, woman, government and community leader, we will work until girls are no longer excluded in the world.
