Support the Girl Declaration and ensure that girls' voices are heard in development planning


December 31, 2014

Investing in adolescent girls has unique power to end global poverty. They weren't listened to when the Millennium Development Goals were set at the start of the century and it shows. As new goals are being drafted for the world, now is the moment to ensure they are not ignored again.

The Girl Effect spoke to 508 girls living in poverty in 14 nations around the world. What they had to say helped to form the Girl Declaration - a call to action to get the world listening to girls.

Listen to what the girls had to say and show your support for the Girl Declaration.
