What is Girls Without Fear?
Girls Without Fear wants to empower girls and teenagers in vulnerable sectors so that they may be confident in themselves, and we do this by being with them in their human development in teenage years so that they can develop all their potential, know their rights and become leaders and promoters of peace in their own communities.
How does Girls Without Fear create an impact?
A girl who is not empowered, does not know her rights, does not develop potential is more liable to become pregnant in childhood or adolescence, as well as to suffer violence. Girls and teenagers in the framework of armed conflict are an easier target for sexual violence, slavery in the home and unwanted pregnancies.
According to the Sustainable Development Objectives, if there is investment in empowering children and teenagers, poverty will be reduced, healthier families will follow and nations will have more sustainable development.
