About Girl Up

No matter their background, girls have the power to transform themselves, their communities, and the world around them. Girl Up is a global movement of empowered young women leaders who defend gender equality. Through leadership development training, Girl Up gives girls the resources and platform to start a movement for social change wherever they are. For those who stand with us in this movement, there is no rest until we achieve equal rights for every girl. Because when girls rise, we all rise.

Girl Up was founded by the United Nations Foundation in 2010 and continues to work across a global community of partners to achieve gender equality worldwide.

About Rise Up

Rise Up activates girls and women to drive exponential change. Girls and women have the power to transform their lives, communities, and countries. We help them tap into that power by strengthening leadership, investing in local solutions, and building movements because we believe in the power of girls and women to create a more just and equitable world. Since 2009, Rise Up’s powerful network of over 500 leaders has directly benefited 7 million girls, youth, and women, advocating for over 100 laws and policies impacting 115 million people in Africa, Latin America, South Asia, and the US.

Rise Up is building a global movement of leaders to ensure that girls can finish school, stay healthy, escape poverty, and overcome violence. Our externally validated model has contributed to improved health, education, and equity for nearly 40 million girls in Africa and Latin America. We identify the most promising girl leaders, allies, and partner organizations and invest in their vision to address the challenges facing marginalized girls through girl-centered advocacy. Our award-winning, girl-centered advocacy curriculum enables our partners to build a better life for girls everywhere.
