Girl Up ignites the empowerment of girls, by girls around the world. In partnership with the United Nations, we stand up for girls, speak up for programs that help them thrive, and rise up as a community of advocates out to change the world, for good.

Girls are powerful. When they’re educated, healthy, safe, and counted, they transform their communities. Girl Up, the United Nations Foundation’s adolescent girl campaign, engages girls to stand up for girls, empowering each other and changing our world. Led by a community of passionate advocates raising awareness and funds, our efforts help the hardest to reach girls living in places where it is hardest to be a girl.


Girl Up envisions a world where every girl can reach her full potential. A world where girls lead the way to bigger dreams and happier days, healthier communities and stronger nations. A world where girls are empowered and our future is brighter because of it.

Girl Up Clubs

Girl Up Clubs are Girl Up's top supporters. Girl Up Clubs are formed by groups of dedicated youth who have joined together to take action and change lives, empowering both people in their own communities and adolescent girls in developing countries to rise up simultaneously. Girl Up is a growing grassroots movement and Girl Up Clubs are leading the way.
