Change A girl’s Life this International Women’s Day

On Monday 8 March 2021, the world will celebrate International Women's Day, a day to challenge stereotypes, broaden perceptions of what is possible and celebrate women’s achievements.

The Change a Girl’s Life Campaign is leading the charge to ensure this day supports the most vulnerable young women across the UK.

377,000 young women are currently not in education, employment or training.

Why your support is needed

Many young women and girls face barriers to fulfilling their potential. In these unprecedented times of the covid pandemic, young women have been hit particularly hard; 78% of those who have lost jobs as a result of the pandemic are women.

Even before the Coronavirus crisis, women were more likely to live in poverty than men. Young women are more also more likely to experience issues such as anxiety.

For those young women who are vulnerable - those affected by mental health or bullying, single parents, victims of sexual abuse, or long-term unemployed, for example - the challenges can seem insurmountable. But they are not.

Join the Change a girls’ life campaign

The Prince’s Trust’s Change a Girl’s Life Campaign is asking businesses to unite to ensure this day helps support the most vulnerable women.

We are asking businesses to change a girl’s life by donating a percentage of sales across the month of March or across the weekend of International Women’s Day.

The campaign is part of The Prince’s Trust Women Supporting Women initiative which aims to raise £10 million by 2023 to provide the right help to nurture, empower and inspire young women to build their own futures through employment, self-employment, education or training.

If you are as passionate as we are about giving young women hope, join us for 2021 and beyond! For further information or to sign up please email Carrie Lang on carrie.lang@princes-trust.org.uk
