NGO OF THE MONTH

Our NGO for January is Plan International and as every month, at the end of your order you will be able to make a micro economic contribution destined entirely to their 'Safer Cities for Girls' project.

Plan International is an organization committed to children's rights and equality for girls that was born in Spain in 1937 and is currently present in more than 80 countries around the world. The organization has worked for 85 years for a just world in which girls and young women can learn, lead, decide and prosper, and drives changes in policies and practices at the local, national and global levels to address the root causes of discrimination. against girls and young women.

Street harassment: the most normalized form of violence

Compliments, insistent looks, unwanted comments, persecution... this is the daily life of girls and women in cities around the world.

Street harassment is a form of gender-based violence so common that 8 out of 10 girls have experienced it. One in five young people who suffer from it have normalized it and, furthermore, society is impassive when it happens: 90% of the young women who have been harassed on the street say they did not receive any kind of help from those who were present, according to the Safer Cities for Girls report, prepared by Plan International based on the experiences of more than 5,000 young people between the ages of 15 and 25 in Madrid, Barcelona, Seville, Brussels, Antwerp and Charleroi.

The data reveals that:

- 78% of girls have suffered street harassment.
- 21% say they have gotten used to it.
- Only 3% report to the authorities.
- 77% of bullying situations do not involve physical contact and range from staring, whistling, chasing, comments and insinuations.

Safer Cities for Girls

Safer Cities for Girls is a Plan International program that, so far, has been carried out in Madrid, Barcelona, Seville, Valencia, Alcobendas, Paracuellos del Jarama, Móstoles, as well as cities around the world, such as Delhi (India), Kampala (Uganda), Brussels (Belgium), Sydney (Australia) or Lima (Peru).

The organization carries out this project so that it is the girls themselves who share their experiences and demand the necessary measures to transform cities into more egalitarian spaces, of inclusion, tolerance and opportunities. In this sense, the recommendations and good practices are shared with the town halls and managers of all the participating cities to prevent and raise awareness about street harassment.

A job with a global reach

Plan International works on the safety of girls and women in cities within the framework of the international Safer Cities initiative, developed in collaboration with UN Habitat and Women in Cities International. In 2018, the (Un)safe in the city report offered a first global diagnosis, through data and experiences of street harassment in five cities on all continents.
