Initiated in May 2010, the Girls Making Media Project is designed to contribute to the elimination of gender discrimination and low quality media reporting on adolescent girls' issues in West Africa. This 3-year project seeks to empower girls to use media to address issues facing adolescents, especially gender discrimination, and to work with adult journalists to improve their coverage of these issues.

The Girls Making Media project works to address gender discrimination using the following strategies: strengthening the capacity of adolescent girls to advocate against gender discrimination by making efficient use of diverse forms of media; increasing girls' opportunities to access media-related jobs; training adult journalists on issues facing adolescent girls; and increasing public awareness of the needs of adolescent girls in West Africa at the community, national, and regional levels.

Because I am a Girl is a global movement driven by Plan International to transform power relations so girls everywhere can learn, lead, decide and thrive.

Together with Plan International, Poster Child Magazine believes that gender equality is central to achieving long-term change in this world. We envision a world that values girls, promotes their rights and ends injustice!

Because I am a Girl supports millions of girls in getting the education, skills and support they need to move from poverty to a future of opportunity. The movement is dedicated to ensuring gender equality and upholding the rights of all girls and young women by 2030. Plan International strives to achieve this by collaborating with children, communities, civil society, governments and other partners to implement long-term programmes that target the root causes of inequality.

Poster Child Magazine is excited to support this awesome goal. In support of girls everywhere we encourage you to join us!
