There are a variety of resources on the Internet for girls. Below, we feature a collection of resources that educate and inspire girls to lead healthy, happy lives in the pursuit of their dreams.
These resources include our Pamphlets, which address a variety of issues that girls face in their personal and social lives. We also list various organizations that seek to inspire and empower girls to pursue their dreams.
We've developed a series of pamphlets to help girls and their families learn about and handle a variety of issues they may encounter. These are downloadable, printable PDFs that you can share with your family, friends, school, and community to help raise awareness and take action.
New pamphlets are always in development. If you have an issue which you'd like us to address, or want to help develop a pamphlet, feel free to let us know.
