Girl Up, the United Nations Foundation’s adolescent girl campaign, supports the empowerment of girls everywhere. Since its launch in 2010, the campaign has funded UN programs that promote the health, safety, education, and leadership of girls in developing countries and built a community of nearly half a million passionate advocates - including Girl Up Global Advocates Her Majesty Queen Rania Al Abdullah of Jordan and Latin American business leader Angélica Fuentes. Our youth leaders, representing more than 1300 Girl Up Clubs in 80 countries, stand up, speak up, and rise up to support the hardest to reach girls living in places where it is hardest to be a girl.
Girls are powerful. When they’re educated, healthy, safe, and counted, they transform their communities.

NO MORE works to prevent domestic violence and sexual assault by creating and disseminating open-source multimedia campaigns and digital tools that help transform the cultural and social norms that perpetuate these problems. Since our launch in March 2013, NO MORE ad campaigns generated more than 4.2 billion media impressions– online, in-print, and on TV–secured nearly $110 million in donated air time, reached every single one of the 210 media markets in the United States and appeared in publications from the Wall Street Journal and The New York Times to Vogue and Vanity Fair. This wave of visibility helped NO MORE equip more than 21,000 individuals, organizations and corporations around the world with NO MORE's free tools so they could help drive additional resources and support for addressing domestic violence and sexual assault in their communities. Together, we can end domestic violence, sexual assault and abuse.
