Because they are girls

This publication is the report of a desk study looking at the difference Plan projects and programmes have made to girls’ lives.Fifteen years ago Plan formally adopted the achievement of gender equality as a critical component in its strategy to eliminate child poverty and realise child rights.Numerous quotes and case histories collected throughout the study demonstrate how Plan’s work has changed lives. The projects have helped reduce gender discrimination and harm to girls and women, opened the doors for girls to gain new opportunities and skills, and triggered transformations in belief systems that blocked progress towards gender equality.
