This Friday, October 11, 2019 is International Day of the Girl!
International Day of the Girl Child is an international observance day declared by the United Nations.
The observation supports more opportunities for girls and increases awareness of inequality faced by girls worldwide based upon their gender. This inequality includes areas such as access to education, nutrition, legal rights, medical care, and protection from discrimination, violence against women, and forced child marriage.
PARTICIPATE… Wear your Girls Unite gear!
In solidarity with International Day of the Girl, Girls Unite is asking our girls to wear a Girls Unite shirt to training or any shirt with girls empowerment messaging.
The celebration of International Day of the Girl also “reflects the successful emergence of girls and young women as a distinct cohort in development policy, programming, campaigning and research.”
Let’s celebrate and stand up for each other together!
