It’s hard to believe that 1 in 7 women in Canada live in poverty, or that 78% of girls under age 17 are unhappy with their bodies; and especially that 1 in 4 girls will be a victim of childhood sexual abuse. But with you and Girls Inc. in her corner, we can change that. With your personal investment, Girls Inc. can serve even more girls and provide life-changing opportunities that empower them to become the next generation of leaders.
Girls Inc. invites you to be a champion for girls - to inspire them to stand on their own two feet and fight for a positive future - to be strong, smart, and bold.
When you support Girls Inc. you are more than investing in girls futures, you are telling them there is someone in their corner who believes in their strength and ability. You can make a difference in the life of a girl in need today. With You and Girls Inc. in Her Corner, she will change the world.

“It’s hard being a girl, because everyone judges you for how you look and what you wear. Girls Inc. has helped me see that I can do anything I put my mind to and that it is not about what you wear or being popular, it’s about being yourself and nobody else. I am proud to have choices and power over, who I am and what I do. When I wake up I see someone who is willing to do anything to achieve my dream. Girls Inc. as given me a place where I can just be me!”
