Girls who support us
Changing the future for – and through – girls!
Because I am a Girl addresses an issue whose time has come. Our inspiring girl supporters are showing the power of girls at any age. While they may live in Canada, they are changing the future for girls in developing countries across the world.
We thank these inspiring girls for giving their energy, time and passion to the movement. By raising awareness and funds for girls and women, they are changing the future for everyone.
