Many children in the world are vulnerable. But millions of girls are denied their basic rights every day – just because they are girls.
In many developing countries, girls are kept out of schools. Instead, they can be forced into child labour, marriage or pregnancy while they are still children. Each year, a staggering 15 million girls are married before they reach the age of 18 — that’s one girl every two seconds.
But there’s hope. When you sponsor a girl through World Vision, you can break this cycle, support her education and give her a chance to reach her dreams.
