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

On Tuesday 8th March 2022, the world will celebrate International Women's Day.

This a day to challenge stereotypes of women, broaden perceptions of what is possible and celebrate women’s achievements.

Many young women and girls face barriers to fulfilling their potential. In these unprecedented times, young women face unique challenges in relation to their confidence, self-esteem and overall mental health. In the first three months of 2021, young women were more likely to experience some form of depression than any other group.

The need to support young women has never been greater. 

That's why we're committed to bringing brands together to design and sell bespoke products in support of The Prince's Trust, donate a percentage of their sales and encourage their employees to fundraise to Change a Girl's Life. 

It's not too late to get involved! We need more innovative organisations to get on board to give young women hope. Join our campaign to gain exclusive access to fundraising ideas, marketing materials and PR support which'll deliver brand impact. 

Change a Girl's Life

For many young women, their challenges seem insurmountable. They are uniquely trapped in a cycle of poor mental health and unemployment which can be hard to break out of. Our research found 60% of young women say that they are fearful for their future due to the pandemic - but The Prince's Trust is here to help them to look positively into their futures and to re-build their lives.

The Prince’s Trust’s Women Supporting Women initiative has been created to help address the challenges young women face.  Made up of more than 80 passionate and influential individuals including Chrissie Rucker OBE from The White Company, Julie Brown from Burberry and Christine Hodgson CBE from Severn Trent, the aim of the network is to raise £10 million over the next few years to provide vital support to help nuture, empower and inspire young women to build their own futures through employment, self-employment, education or training.
