Individuals can help make a difference in our video campaign by having their say as to “Why Every Girl Matters?” We will be shooting on location asking the public this very question. This is a way for individuals to take part in a bigger montage of voices that are working for change and helping to create a better world where girls’ rights matter.

In addition, people can take part in our “Handmade with Love Art Project,” where you can literally get your hands involved as we welcome you to help us create a tapestry of hand painted art with heartfelt messages on our social banner.
