SUPPORT OUR GIRL 50-50 PETITION TO CLOSE THE INEQUALITY GAP BETWEEN GIRLS WITH DISABILITIES & THOSE WITHOUT DISABILITIES IN AFRICA
GIRLS WITH DISABILITIES MATTER!
GIRL 50-50 IS AN ESSENTIAL PREREQUISITE TO ACHIEVING PLANET 50-50 IN AFRICA.
While we do acknowledge that there are current studies on issues pertaining to curbing the marginalization of girls with disabilities in Africa, we argue that there is not enough comprehensive information as to how the disparities & gaps between opportunities available to girls living with disabilities as compared to those living without disabilities will directly impact the overall success of the planet 50-50 agenda in Africa by 2030. The Global Goals are two years in, so we must put the issues pertaining to disparities between girls living with disabilities as compared to those without at the forefront of gender & human rights discussions. We must put this disparity at the forefront of discussions of the success of the planet 50-50 agenda in Africa. No group of girls should be left behind! No Girl should be left behind!
