About International Women's Day

Around the world, women and girls are underrepresented, undervalued and underestimated.
But this International Women’s Day, you can help advance equality by donating in tribute to a powerful woman in your life.

International Women’s Day is a moment dedicated to honouring women while also recognizing the work that needs to be done to achieve gender equality around the world.

Donate by March 8 to make a tribute that helps women thrive and empowers the next generation of girls.

Rakayatou carves a new path 

With the help of Plan International donors like you, Rakayatou – a single mother in a Cameroon refugee camp – joined a women’s vocational course to foster her future and finances. “I decided to act.”

Rakayatou chose carpentry, crushing stereotypes. Already 100 graduates are equipped to startup businesses, defy gender norms and drill into their equal power.

“Now I make money to care for my children and their education.” Rakaytou strives to be her own boss.

Now, thanks to this opportunity and donors like you – Rakayatou is carving wood and a better path for future generations of women.
