Girls and women are almost always the most vulnerable people in any community
All around the world girls and women are disproportionately impacted by malnutrition, disease, discrimination and violence, simply because of their gender.
World Vision’s GENDER EQUALITY Cause is aligned with five of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, ensuring healthy lives, quality education, food security, sustainable economic growth, and empowering all girls and women.
The Gender Equality Cause works to improve the health and well-being of girls and women. When we believe and invest in the agency of girls and women, ensure the right resources are available to them and work to address harmful social norms and structures, pathways of health, education and economic empowerment improve for them and their communities.
Without equality for girls and women, the world will not be able to end poverty.
