The Future Of The Girl

Girls are the Future. Girls have the power to shape their futures – and the future of our world. But no one can realize their potential alone – that’s why it’s critical that girls receive the insight and support of the generations of strong women who have come before them.

Caterpillar Foundation, together with Glamour, The Girl Project and other partners, is leading an awareness campaign called The Future of the Girl. Created for girls and by girls, The Future of the Girl elevates girls’ voices and celebrates their power to help us learn from our history, understand our present, and create a better future for all.
