UN Development Goal:
Gender equality continues to act as a barrier for women in the developing world leading to a lack of access to services and the deprivation of basic human rights.
According to UN data, an estimated 21% of women ages 20-24 years old reported that they had been involved in a child marriage before the age of 18. In 2017 alone, 1 in 3 girls were subjected to FGM. Women in developing countries have reported to spend over three times as many hours in unpaid domestic work than men.
Make an Impact on Gender Equality
Increase Awareness & Medical Care for FGM – Over 200 million women and girls have undergone FGM (female genital mutilation). By increasing awareness for this issue and providing medical care and resources for survivors, you educate people worldwide about the issue and support affected women now.1 of 1
