The Girl Child Platform
The Girl Child Platform is a meeting point for all organizations and initiatives working to improve and strengthen young girls' position in society. Together we can make a greater difference and change in order to achieve a society free of oppression and discrimination. The Girl Child Platform aims to create a long-term and sustainable cooperation between all of these stakeholders, in order to raise issues of girls' rights on the Swedish political agenda.
The Girl Child Platform is a three year project funded by the Swedish Postcode Lottery and run by the Hunger Project Sweden and Make Equal.
By attending national and international conferences and organizing seminars and discussions on women’s and girls’ rights, we intend to raise awareness on these matters, but most importantly involve girls and young women in the discussions concerning their rights.
Our vision is a society free of the power relations around gender and age that restrict and discriminate girls and young women today.
