Make change on behalf of women and girls all across Africa #Africa4Her

Wow! Since March 1st, YALI Network members have demonstrated their belief in the importance of women and girls by making over 14,000 #Africa4Her pledges. This shows how powerful the YALI Network can be when you join forces for a cause. Won’t you join them?

 
Many Network members have pledged to speak out against gender-based violence, mentor girls and be champions for girl’s education – just to name a few popular pledges. But I have also been impressed by those that have looked beyond what pledge options we provided, and created pledges that were important to them.

For example, Abdulkadir from Nigeria has pledged to “help increase awareness of gynecologic and breast cancers as a tool towards prevention, early detection viz screening and treatment.”

And Zione from Malawi pledges to “build knowledge and skills of women and girls in areas of agriculture, food and nutrition security so that, together, we raise a generation of well nourished and healthy individuals that contribute to development.”

I’m so excited to continue to hear all of your good ideas over the next month. Share #Africa4Her (yali.state.gov/4her) with your your friends and ask them to join the movement to make real change on behalf of women and girls all across Africa today.
