Girl Up fosterS popular interest in the potential of adolescent girls in the developing world

On June 1st, the new and expanded Girl Up website has been launched. The UN Foundation’s new public campaign has been created to foster popular interest in the potential of adolescent girls in the developing world.

UNESCO Mainstreaming news (1/06/2010) : Girl Up, a campaign of the United Nations Foundation, harnesses the energy and compassion of American girls to raise awareness and funds for programs of the United Nations that help some of the world’s most vulnerable adolescent girls.

Through Girl Up’s support, more girls will become educated, healthy, safe, counted and positioned to be the next generation of leaders. Campaign supporters are encouraged to give a “High Five” to girls in developing countries by donating $5 or more to provide girls with such basic needs as access to school supplies, clean water, life-saving health services, safety from violence and more. This is a campaign for Girls by Girls.
