Help her live free of fear

For girls in the developing world, gender equality isn’t just about glass ceilings. It’s about basic rights.

Each year, millions of girls in poverty are kept out of school. Instead, many are forced to stay home and work, while others are made to marry and bear children before they are physically or emotionally ready.

It’s happening every minute – but you can help change this. When you sponsor a girl, you can give her the chance to live free of fear.

Every girl deserves to reach her potential

Our movement is leading up to International Day of the Girl, October 11. This is a day that was created by the United Nations in 2012 to celebrate the achievements and potential of girls.

That’s what the 1,000 Girls movement is all about. When you sponsor a girl with World Vision, you can give her the tools and resources to break free of poverty and grow up fearless. 

That’s why, to mark International Day of the Girl, we’re calling on you to join our movement and sponsor a girl. Can we count on you?
