Many girls have limited screen time & often have to borrow phones or use pseudonyms to come online. Imagine not having the ability to access important information about your health, wellbeing, and livelihood. This is the reality for millions of girls. #TheGirlEffect
FACT: Boys use far more phone features than girls. Girls’ level of accessibility ranges from country to country. A girl is more likely to use a phone for messaging while boys look for jobs or skills. In this digital generation, closing the #GenderDigitalDivide is essential.
Through our media programs, we reach millions of girls in over 20 countries across Africa and Asia. Learn how we’re equipping more and more girls with information: #TheGirlEffect

It only takes one girl to shift a whole community and it begins when she finds her power to make life-changing choices for herself. She inspires others, creating a ripple effect that impacts her family, her community, and her world. That’s #TheGirlEffect.
