International Day of the Girl

As you know, there are too many girls around the world who are displaced, who are impacted by conflict, food scarcity and climate change. There are record numbers of displaced people across the globe today and, often, girls are the most vulnerable. However, they are courageous and persevering.

To mark 2018’s International Day of The Girl, CARE released a report today titled “Far from Home: The 13 worst refugee crises for girls” which you can see at care.org/farfromhome.  The report shares stories of girls who, though they have been affected by the refugee crisis, are more resilient thanks to you. CARE CEO Michelle Nunn also recorded a short message of thanks for all that you do to empower girls. Your support has helped millions of girls regain hope for a better future!


But we have more to do. Even one girl in crisis is one too many.  You can sign and share this petition to urge Congress to protect U.S. foreign assistance, which not only saves lives, but equips girls with the tools they need to overcome the threats they routinely face in emergencies.

On this International Day of the Girl, I want to thank you for again for the meaningful difference you are making for girls all over the world.
