NPH and Women’s Empowerment

Latin America and Caribbean have the highest rates of gender-based violence in the world. NPH is changing the outlook and future for girls by providing them with the safety, care, and stability that enables young girls to recover and view themselves as strong, capable, nurturing members of society. These empowered women then go on to benefit–socially, politically, and economically – the communities where they live. We collectively have the power to lift, celebrate, and transform the lives of girls and women. Join us to learn more about gender inequality in Latin America and the Caribbean and how you can make a difference.
