For girls everywhere, adolescence is a challenging, sometimes frightening time. In parts of the world where girls are often sexually harassed, or even attacked, with impunity, girls' drop out rates from school soar. You can help create safe spaces for girls in secondary schools. It's a crucial step toward ending the gender gap in education. CARE works closely with community members to ensure that classrooms for girls are culturally appropriate and that teachers and parents will support their operation over the long term.
