Today is the International Day of the Girl!

Since 2012, October 11 has been marked as the International Day of the Girl. The day aims to highlight and address the needs and challenges girls face, while promoting girls’ empowerment and the fulfillment of their human rights.

This year, under the theme, GirlForce: Unscripted and unstoppable”, we will celebrate achievements by, with and for girls since the adoption of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action in 1995!
WAYS TO GET INVOLVED!
  1. Share stories of girls you know who are “unscripted” and “unstoppable” in their communities, families or schools via your classrooms, conversations and social media.

Have a great day!
