Today, girls continue to encounter significant obstacles to their well-being and success, such as teen pregnancy, high school completion, body image, and violence.

Our society is sending a clear message that affects girls’ education, aspirations, and leadership. But it doesn’t have to be this way.

  • 1 in 4 girls will not graduate high school in the US. But with you in her corner, girls can be prepared to graduate and achieve a bright future.
  • 78% of girls are unhappy with their bodies by age 17. At Girls Inc., girls get support to build positive body image and the confidence to avoid unhealthy behaviors and break past stereotypes.
  • 3 in 10 girls will become pregnant before the age of 20. At Girls Inc., we help girls prepare to own their future, respect themselves, and make healthy choices.
  • 1 in 5 girls will be a victim of childhood sexual abuse. At Girls Inc., we help girls understand they have the right to be safe in the world and confidence to advocate for themselves and others.

At Girls Inc. we have a vision of a world where every girl values her whole self and her inherent strengths, has opportunities to develop her potential, breaks past serious obstacles, and leads a healthy, educated, and successful life.
