10 - How our future depends on a girl at this decisive age

In some sense, today’s 10-year-old girls—just over 60 million in number— are the point where achieving the 2030 Agenda begins.

In 15 years, the lifespan of the 2030 Agenda, the 10-year-old girl will be 25. Will she still be left behind? Or will she be enjoying her human rights and well-being, and exploring the many avenues open to her, knowing that, when her own daughter turns 10, she will experience more of the same?

Today's 10-year-old girls, whether they live in developing or developed countries, cities, villages or refugee camps, or come from rich or poor households, all have hopes and dreams for the future. But each will face different challenges on their journey through adolescence to adulthood. The State of World Population 2016 includes glimpses into the lives and aspirations of 10 girls from diverse backgrounds.
