By empowering girls through education, skills training, and mentorship, we can dismantle barriers and create a world where every girl can flourish.
Initiatives, scholarships, vocational training programs, and business startup support enable girls to develop skills that will empower them for a lifetime. By investing in their education and providing them with resources, we can equip girls to become change-makers and leaders in their communities.
Looking Forward to October 2023
As we approach International Day of the Girl Child in 2023, we anticipate remarkable initiatives and events to mark its 11th anniversary, especially the United States. The U.S., in collaboration with various organizations, will host events to celebrate the achievements of girls and young women worldwide.
