For more than 65 years, World Vision Canada has been dedicated to working with the world’s most vulnerable people regardless of religion, race, ethnicity or gender. Our mission is to improve the lives of vulnerable children across the globe.

To fully contribute to their well-being, we must intentionally address gender inequality which hinders the development and growth of individuals and societies. But real progress can only take place through intentional action that transforms opportunities, resources and choices for girls and women.

Girls and women are often the most marginalized and discriminated against in any given population.  Of the 75 million children who are out of school in 35 crisis-affected countries, girls outnumber boys by 2 ½ times. These girls are more vulnerable to sexual violence, child marriage, adolescent pregnancy and lower income-earning potential.

Support her strength.

Imagine school being out of reach simply because you are menstruating. Imagine having no choice as to who you marry, solely because you are a girl. Imagine a future that is out of your hands because you were born female.

For many girls in the DRC, this is their reality. 

With your partnership, POWER OF HER will create space for girls to learn, to heal, to participate—supporting them to take their rightful place as change agents for future generations.
