Everywhere in the world, girls and young women face violence and discrimination. Access to culture, knowledge and information are key to combating this scourge for two reasons:

- in a logic of prevention, so that they gain the confidence and awareness they need to overcome self-censorship and/or overcome discrimination ;

- in a logic of curation, to help them survive (in cases of violence in particular) and rebuild, via the use of culture as a means of escape and creation to recount their trauma, and access to knowledge as a tool for building their future (crafts, entrepreneurship etc).

However, Libraries Without Borders notes that very often, young girls and women are less numerous to visit its programs, which the NGO therefore wishes to enrich and adapt to these issues.


The aim is to carry out a project to enrich the resources and activities made available to each of Libraries Without Borders' programs, in 36 different languages, via: 
- work to select and create new adapted content (books, videos, moocs etc.);
- the design of teaching kits to run specific workshops for young girls (self-confidence, speaking out, creativity, orientation, civic mobilization etc.), in partnership with experts on the subject, with a view to prevention.

A special focus on victims of sexual violence will be developed, in partnership with the UN.
