Do you believe that all women and girls should have the opportunity to survive and thrive leading healthy and dignified lives? Women make up more than half of the world’s population, they do two-thirds of the work and represent 70% of the world’s poor. Yet women all over the world face the dark reality of abandonment, exploitation, and abuse.
We can partner together to reach the most vulnerable of women and girls by mobilising communities to take action for the issues they are facing and find solutions. In 2015 we met the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of women and girls by offering training and education to 17,000 families equipping them with life-saving information. Together we are better, we can continue to restore the respect, honour and dignity every woman deserves.
Women die from pregnancy or childbirth related complications globally every day. That’s one every 90 seconds.
Women will be raped beaten or abused in her lifetime.
Girls are married before the age of 18 EACH YEAR. That is 28 girls every minute. 1 every 2 seconds.
Millions of women and girls and their children are either dying from preventable diseases or are left affected by a health situation resulting in long term effects on their daily lives. This is either because they lack basic knowledge about lifesaving health issues, or don’t have the access to or don’t use health care facilities. Together we can offer simple, vital education that can save lives:
Women and girls are living in fear, as a result of domestic violence, female genital mutilation, rape, dowry death and other forms of violence against them. No woman or girl should be living with such fear and pain; together we can respond to this issue by:
Trained health care workers per month.
People were provided medical services to per month.
Educated people on various health practices and behaviors per month.
