Did You Know???  

This may sound like a shameless plug, but our intent is true.  Here are a few facts:

In many parts of the world, being a girl means being more likely to:

  • suffer from malnutrition
  • be forced into early marriage
  • be subjected to violence
  • be sold into the sex trade
  • become infected with HIV

Because she is a girl, she

  • faces discrimination in her own home
  • has limited access to a doctor or even a primary education (if she’s able to go to school at all).

Because I am a Girl aims to change all that. Because I am a Girl is a global initiative of Plan International that creates sustainable projects in developing countries to give girls access to the most basic of human rights: clean water, food, healthcare, education, financial security, and protection from violence and exploitation.

YOU can support this important campaign and help make a difference for girls by: (1) going to the Because I am a Girl page to donate: http://www.planusa.org/becauseiamagirl/  ; or (2) Buying a copy of Derby, Baby! on DVD or Blu-ray.  $2 from every unit sold will go directly to Because I am a Girl : http://store.derbybabythefilm.com/plan-international
