A day that "aims to promote girl’s empowerment and fulfillment of their human rights while also highlighting the challenges that girls all over the world face."
- International Day of the Girl Child | United Nations
International Day of the Girl
In 1995 at the World Conference on Women...
Nearly 30,000 people from around the world came together to develop the most comprehensive platform for advancing women’s rights around the world. In recognition of the advocacy around the world towards the effort, October 11th was declared International Day of the Girl in 2012.
To commemorate the 10th anniversary of International Day of the Girl, we are looking to collect words of wisdom from you, our supporters, and sponsors, to our young girls in helping them acknowledge their power and potential.
On October 11th, we will be engaging the girls in activities encouraging them to understand their power and potential including sharing your words of wisdom!
Help us Commemorate this special day!
