Embracing the Digital Age: Empowering Girls for a Brighter Future
26th January 2024
In today’s rapidly evolving world, the digital landscape offers boundless opportunities for growth and progress for girls. Technology holds incredible potential for empowering girls to become leaders, innovators and change-makers in their communities and beyond.
Systems of inequity, like a lack of access to online resources, are keeping hunger in place in communities around the world. When girls have the opportunity to connect to online platforms it gives them the power to access rapid and current information, which improves their education, businesses and engagement with civil society and political processes. In turn, each of these facets of life contribute to ending hunger in communities around the world.
At The Hunger Project, we are committed to harnessing this potential by encouraging girls to embrace digital resources as a tool for personal and societal advancement.
Our programs equip girls with vital skills in digital literacy, enabling them to confidently navigate the virtual world and drive positive change in their communities. As girls navigate the digital landscape, they become architects of their own destinies, defying traditional barriers and stereotypes.
Our programs go beyond the digital space. We work with girls in India to build their confidence and courage to demand their rights, including the right not to be married. In Bangladesh, thousands of girls find their voice through Youth Ending Hunger-Bangladesh, as they join with other like-minded youth to plan activities to improve their communities.
Through this work, The Hunger Project envisions a world where the potential of every girl is realised, and where their contributions, both in the virtual realm and the real world, drive meaningful change for generations to come.
What you can do.
- Invest now in girls. Invest in the sustainable end of hunger.
- Share the message. Tell your friends, family and colleagues how important it is to guarantee equal access to digital resources.
