Because I am a Girl

A Plan International Champion of Change Club at the University of Toronto Mississauga dedicated to promoting girls' rights and gender equality.

As a student organization, we strive to:
- Bring students of the University of Toronto Mississauga together to promote gender equality and girl's rights.
- Create awareness about gender inequalities in various circumstances (work, education, wages, cultures etc.)
- Educate the general public about concerning issues; such as poverty in which 70%, are women and girls, human rights, female infanticide etc.
- Hold monthly fundraisers to raise money in order to sponsor children for the academic year.
- Create a sense of community on campus for students who feel the urge to give back to those who are less fortunate
- Decrease the stigma around women’s rights and feminism – Because I Am A Girl UTM is gender neutral (our main focus is girls but we also aim to help boys in poverty as well).
