Girl's rights

To ensure a sustainable future, strengthening girls' rights and opportunities is essential. This includes the elimination of all forms of discrimination against girls and women, which is not only a fundamental human right, but also has a multiplier effect across all other areas of development.

The global community has come a long way in the area of gender equality – for example, more girls are now attending school than just 15 years ago. However, there is still a long way to go in some areas. This applies, for example, to access to sexual and reproductive health and rights and equal access to economic resources. Girls are particularly vulnerable to early and forced marriages, interrupted education, violence, and early pregnancies. Girls experience more than men that they have no influence on decision-making processes and that there is unequal access to resources.

In 100% for the Children, we fight for the rights of girls and women and for gender equality. We do this, among other things, by ensuring girls access to education, sexual and reproductive health and rights and influence on decision-making processes through the projects below.
