11 October – International Day of the Girl Child

 

Day of the Girl Child - Elizabeth Place

The International Day of the Girl Child seeks to bring awareness and solutions to the unique challenges that girls around the world face every day.

From the moment a child is born, she can grow up to be a scientist, author, business leader, mother, teacher or anything she may choose to be. Providing her with healthy options, education, and resources to make her own choices means removing some of the obstacles she faces.

Depending on where she lives, a young girl’s challenges will vary and how we approach addressing those issues will change. During International Day of the Girl Child, join the global call to action. Create real solutions; listen to the aspirations of young women; mentor someone who will someday overcome the challenges she faces. Donate supplies to schools. Be inspired by the spirit and drive of each generation of girls. Empower them by speaking about women leaders from the past and present. Whether she was a teacher or an author, a political leader or an activist, share the stories of those who have made changes for the better in the world. Be a part of the difference that makes lives better for aspiring young girls around the globe.
