International Day of the Girl – October 11
Celebrate the power and potential of girls!
The International Day of the Girl gives us a powerful way to highlight the needs and rights of girls, and to advocate for greater action and investment to enable girls to reach their full potential.
Today, girls still face discrimination in many parts of the world simply because they are girls. They face unique challenges such as barriers to education and opportunities to make a living, early and forced marriage, and poverty.
And yet, we know investing in girls is key to creating a brighter, safer future for everyone.
When girls are educated, healthy and informed, they lift themselves, their children and their entire communities out of poverty.
Join us in the global celebration of girls!
