What the world will look like in 15 years will depend on our doing everything in our power to ignite the potential of a 10-year-old girl today.

The new United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and its accompanying 17 Sustainable Development Goals aim for equitable, inclusive development that leaves no one behind. This 15-year plan promises to help transform the futures of millions of 10-year-old girls who have traditionally been left behind.
