Did you know that 8 out of 10 girls are so concerned with the way they look that they opt out of important activities?
Imagine a world where no-one felt this pressure. WAGGGS and Dove have been working together since 2014 towards this incredible vision; we want everyone to feel free to be themselves – to feel Free Being Me!
By the end of 2016, we reached 3.5 million children and young people with body confidence activities in 120 countries. Amazing – but there’s a lot more work to be done!
Free Being Me: Our original body confidence badge programme continues to boost body confidence worldwide. Find out more.
Action on Body Confidence: This new badge programme supports children and young people to develop and run their own advocacy projects, advocating for real change that will affect girls’ lives and create a more body confident world. Find out more.
