As a coalition of more than 40 international organizations that design, implement and evaluate programs that benefit adolescent girls, we envision a world where adolescent girls are able to fully realize their rights, navigate challenges and access opportunities during the transition from childhood to adulthood and beyond.

We know that when adolescent girls are safe, educated, healthy and empowered, they can create lasting change within their communities and end generations of poverty.

Today, we stand together with adolescent girls, organizations and leaders across the globe to celebrate the International Day of the Girl.  The Coalition welcomes the momentum created by the Girl Declaration and encourages more organizations, communities and countries to listen to, invest in and empower girls – not just today but everyday!
