Power to Girls commitments

Featured commitments

Mary Robinson

  • Ireland

I support Power to Girls by committing empowering girls. We must address the issue of poverty and marginalisation, which lead to child marriage. We need to recognise that COVID has had a very real effect around the world of increasing the number of people in poverty and therefore increasing child marriage. Let's also work together to make sure girls in Afghanistan don’t get pushed into marriage and can stay in school

Le pouvoir aux filles, c'est la victoire contre les mariages d'enfants et toutes les inégalités qu'elles subissent.
Le pouvoir aux filles, c'est leur permettre de briser le silence, de se prononcer sur leur vie, leurs choix, leurs rêves, leurs besoins...
Le pouvoir aux filles, c'est un véritable code d'accès à une éducation complète de qualité et un plein épanouissement.
Le pouvoir aux filles, c'est le signal fort pour qu'ensemble, toutes et tous, nous nous engageons à valoriser chaque fille. Car, valoriser une fille, c'est valoriser l'humanité.
