Why Girls? Jobs & Money

We need to start young to support girls in cultivating their confidence, skills and experience in order to reach their full potential. With the right conditions, girls can grow up to improve their own socio-economic situation and create a ripple effect in their communities. Creating those conditions starts with understanding that as girls grow up, they face many pressures and systemic barriers that influence their abilities to plan their futures and achieve financial security.

Long lasting change towards financial security requires challenging the root causes that create social inequalities for girls and women. This requires engagement from individuals, the community, institutions and society as a whole.
