Girls in crisis
Around the world, 500 million adolescent girls are living in countries affected by conflict and humanitarian crises.
In these environments, navigating the challenges of growing up as a girl – from increased domestic work to the risk of gender-based violence, child marriage and pregnancy and childbirth – becomes immensely more challenging.
That's why we're working to support young girls and women growing up during times of crisis.
Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting
The Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) took place in London this April, bringing together young people, business leaders and heads of Government from across the Commonwealth.
We were there, along with youth advocates Hope and Georgina from Kenya and Viola and Norah from Uganda, as they asked their Governments to commit to leading the fight to end the exploitation of girls.
