Stuff I Dig

I did this. Because I am a girl. If you’re a girl (or a girl respecting fella), I urge you to hop on board too.

Excerpt from Plan International

Because I am a Girl is Plan’s campaign to fight gender inequality, promote girls’ rights and lift millions of girls out of poverty.

Across the world, girls face double discrimination due to their gender and age, leaving them at the bottom of the social ladder.

Research has shown that girls are more likely to suffer from malnutrition; be forced into an early marriage; be subject to violence or intimidation; be trafficked, sold or coerced into the sex trade; or become infected with HIV.

Plan is producing one girl report each year in the run up to 2015, the target year for the Millennium Development Goals. Each report provides tangible proof of the inequalities that still exist between boys and girls.

Join our campaign and help us transform the lives of the world’s poorest girls.

I made my donation via text message. Text HOPE to 30333 to donate $5 to the cause.
