Gender equality has come a long way, but many women and girls continue to face barriers. To achieve a prosperous and sustainable future for all, we must invest in women, and the following WHO video explains how we can do that.

It notes a few ways we can make change, starting with…

  • promoting and respecting women’s rights
  • providing access to quality rights-based and affordable health services
  • promoting women’s leadership in workforces

At Children Believe, we help girls and women gain equal opportunities by developing their knowledge, and leadership skills, providing training and awareness campaigns on gender equality and encouraging girls and women to participate in decision-making in our programs.

You can help the world achieve gender equality by empowering girls through our Gifts for Good catalogue.

Sharing is caring:

ABOUT CHILDREN BELIEVE (formerly Christian Children's Fund of Canada):

For 60 years, we’ve brought together brave young dreamers, caring supporters and partners, and unabashed idealists. Together, we’re driven by a common belief: creating access to education — inside and outside of classrooms — is the most powerful tool children can use to change their world.
