Her future will be a reflection of how well we work together to protect her rights today.

More than just a kiss, but a symbol of love ""I always wanted to be a mother,"" says Michele, whose daughter Ayla was born with microcephaly, a birth defect associated with #Zika that causes malformation of the head and is linked to irregular brain growth, learning disabilities, epilepsy and other problems. In #Brazil, the worst-affected of the 62 countries that have recorded mosquito-borne Zika transmission, we are improving womens access to reproductive health including referrals to specialized care for pregnant women with Zika. ""I have nothing to complain about. I don''t feel ashamed of my daughter. I just thank God for giving me her,"" says Michele.

I talk with girls in my community on the importance of staying in school. Like any other young woman, Jenipher dreams of making it big. A few years after we helped her escape an abusive child marriage in Malawi and go back to school, Jenipher received a bicycle from @GirlUpCampaign that reduced her two-hour walk to class to a 30-minute cycle. This week, we''re excited to learn that @Disney has achieved its goal of donating $1 million to the @GirlUpCampaign as part of its #DreamBigPrincess campaign. These funds will help preserve the dreams of girls like Jenipher around the world.
