International children’s charity World Vision UK is looking for people to support the movement for gender equality by sponsoring 1000 girls in developing countries.
The #1000Girls campaign comes at a critical time for girls around the world, who are fighting terrible odds to give themselves a better future. This year 12 million girls will be married against their will and 31 million will be out of school – many forced into work or domestic servitude. Less than two in five countries provide girls and boys with equal access to education.
World Vision aims to get 1000 girls sponsored by the International Day of the Girl on 11 October. This global moment celebrates girls’ strength and potential in the face of severe challenges.
