This toolkit is one of a set created by Plan Canada, which explore key global issues and themes in Plan’s international development work in an accessible way. The toolkits promote discussion around both the challenges and possible solutions to address these issues. They are well-suited for teachers, educators, youth leaders, mentors, and clubs.
Millions of women and girls face obstacles and stereotypes just because they are female, which affects the opportunities they have and the kind of lives they live. This is true not only in the developing countries where Plan works, but also right here at home. This toolkit will introduce you to the complex topic of gender equality. Inside, you’ll find resources and information to help you:
- Learn about the challenges girls face in developing countries.
- Understand how Plan addresses these challenges.
- Raise awareness about the importance of gender equality.
- Take action to support Plan’s Because I am a Girl programs around the world.
