Because when a girl is given her basic human rights she can lift herself - and everyone around her - out of poverty.

Meet some amazing girls. They are from all over the world and tell stories of their lives that are sometimes hard to imagine. They tell of the barriers and dangers that they, and millions of girls like them, face every day.

Despite the hardships, they have great hope for the future. All are willing to do whatever they can to make their lives and those of their families and communities better.
