protect children

Every child has the right to survive and thrive, to education and knowledge, to grow and prosper and the opportunity to live their best life.

Girls see gender inequality in their homes and communities every day – in textbooks, in the media and among the adults who care for them. 

Women across the globe still bear the brunt of caregiving and chores.  The majority of low-skilled and underpaid community health workers who attend to children are also women, with limited opportunity for professional growth. 

And in schools, many girls still receive less support than boys to pursue the studies they choose.  The safety, hygiene and sanitation needs of girls may be neglected, barring them from regularly attending class.

As a result, worldwide, nearly 1 in 4 girls between the ages of 15 and 19 are neither employed nor in education or training – compared to 1 in 10 boys.

Education is a driver of real and powerful change that can break the cycle of poverty.

Access to financial support and specialised learning programs help to remove obstacles that disadvantaged children can face so they can come to school feeling on equal terms with their classmates.

Because every child deserves the opportunity to a quality education to be their best.

EVERY child matters. 

 

No matter their religion, race or abilities; whatever they think or say; what their culture is; whether they are boys or girls or whether they are rich or poor.

Help children to be heathy and strong, ensuring they have a place in the classroom, protection from harm and the opportunity to realise their potential and aspirations.
