We asked adolescent girls from Palestine, Jordan, Kurdistan Iraq, Libya, Yemen, Somalia and Syria about their dreams and aspirations, and they answered that any girl should be able to aspire to be an architect, a pilot or even the president of her country!

UNFPA believes in the right of girls to be informed about their bodies and empowered in their ability to choose what is better for them, and encourages teenage girls to stay in school, pursue professional opportunities and delay pregnancy until they are over 18 years of age.

It is our responsibility to give proper information to adolescent girls, so they can grow into a safe and healthy womanhood.
