• Global #GirlsTakeover 2017 - bigger than ever!

    1,270 views 1 month ago
    Girls around the world raised their voices for justice and equality by taking over more than 600 positions of power to mark International Day of the Girl 2017.

    Hundreds of leaders and decision makers worldwide stepped aside to let girls take charge in over 60 countries. Girls from Japan to Peru called for radical social and policy change to tear down barriers of discrimination and prejudice that continue to hold them back.

    By occupying spaces and places where they are rarely seen or heard, girls and young women demanded action to find solutions to ensure all girls can learn, lead, decide and thrive. Show less

  • Invisible Girls Play all

    Millions of girls are ‘invisible’ to governments and policy makers because vital data is not being recorded about their lives. We don’t count how many girls leave school because of early marriage, pregnancy or violence, exactly how many give birth before they turn 15, how many hours a day they spend working, what kind of work they do and whether they get paid for it. Bringing visibility to these realities can transform girls' lives.
    Plan International's latest research, 'Counting the Invisible' exposes these gaps in the current data: http://bit.ly/InvisibleGirls5

  • Ebola outbreak: Two years on Play all

    These films follow events during the West Africa Ebola outbreak since it was first confirmed by the World Health Organisation on 23 March 2014.

    The Ebola outbreak death toll rose to over 10,000 people in Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia. But the impact of the emergency has gone far beyond health and has affected all levels of society and the economy in West Africa.

    Plan International has been on the ground responding to the emergency since the first cases were confirmed. The Ebola outbreak peaked during the last quarter of 2014. With intensive efforts involving national governments, UN and international agencies and donor nations, the region is almost free of the disease. But it's not over yet and significant dangers remain.

    The videos in this playlist appear in the order they were made over time (with the most recent first) and show the effects of the disaster on children, families, communities and the health workers fighting the disease.

    • Ebola Warriors, Ebola Food Sellers and Ebola orphans were shot at the height of the outbreak in late September, early October.
    • The Youth Voices films feature the voices of young people from West Africa who blogged for Plan about the impact of Ebola on them, such as the closing of schools, early pregnancy among girls and the stigmatisation of orphans and Ebola sufferers.
    • The Care Centre Blog follows a 2015 visit to a Community Care Centre, one of the key interventions supporting the fight against Ebola.
