Girl Up, the United Nations Foundation’s adolescent girl campaign, supports the empowerment of girls everywhere. Since its launch in 2010, the campaign has funded UN programs that promote the health, safety, education, and leadership of girls in developing countries and built a community of more than half a million passionate advocates. Our youth leaders, representing more than 1,800 Girl Up Clubs in more than 90 countries, stand up, speak up, and rise up to support the hardest to reach girls living in places where it is hardest to be a girl.
