1 Plan’s Global Campaign to unleash the power of girls and secure a brighter future for all

2 The Because I am a Girl campaign is Plan’s commitment to unlocking the astonishing potential of girls around the world by securing girls’ rights and ending gender discrimination.

3 The Plight of girls. Girls in the poorest regions of the world are among the most disadvantaged people on the planet. They face unique barriers to survival and development, simply because they’re girls.

4 The Power of girls. Girls hold the power to break the inter- generational cycle of poverty. By educating girls, by giving them nourishment, health care, and protection, they will flourish and go on to improve the lives of those around them.

5 Campaign Goal The goal of Plan’s Because I Am A Girl campaign commits to building the human capital of girls through knowledge and skills, aiming to equip, enable and empower girls of all ages to acquire the assets, skills and knowledge necessary to succeed in life. Key to this are safe and quality learning environments for girls, both formal and non-formal.

6 Campaign Outcomes & Impact Campaign Theme Girls gain skills for life: ‘Learning for Life’ Campaign Outcomes Girls enroll and complete quality primary and secondary education in a safe and supportive community environment and acquire the skills they need to access decent economic opportunities. Girls have time and space to become active citizens and develop safe social networks and life skills. Campaign Impact Girls are empowered to enjoy their rights: they have increased financial skills and economic assets, and their social position and value is recognized in society.

7 Through the campaign, Plan wants to have a lasting impact on: 4m girls directly 40m girls and boys through gender-aware and gender-transformative programmes 400m girls through policy change

8 Because I am a Girl is also about creating a global social movement for positive and sustainable change in the lives of girls connecting millions of girls, boys, women and men together and with the campaign by combining the efforts of Plan’s 70 offices around the world, and engaging other like minded organizations and personalities to act as champions and ambassadors for girls rights.

14 2011 A ground-breaking report on the role of boys and men in working for gender equality. The attitudes and behavior of men and boys, often seen as part of the problem, need to become part of the solution. So, what about boys?

15 Education can be the foundation that girls need to survive and thrive. This report looks behind these expectations and examines what it will take for educators and governments to fulfill the promise of education and meet their obligations to adolescent girls. It examines the challenges faced by girls from many different backgrounds as they struggle to access education and to learn. It looks at the detail of what is taught, both in terms of the curriculum and the attitudes that are passed on. It looks beyond the numbers of girls in school to the power of learning to transform the lives of young women and the communities they live in. And it examines how, in a world marked by inequality, education can address the needs, rights and opportunities of adolescent girls to enable them to take their place as active and equal citizens State of the World‘s Girls Report : Title TBC Each of the past ‘Because I am a Girl’ reports has talked about the importance of education for empowering girls and giving them the tools they need to function in the global economy, to manage the impact of conflict on their lives, to negotiate with the men and boys in their lives, and to live in a rapidly urbanising and digitised world.
