The Day of the girl is a worldwide response to an urgent problem facing girls around the globe in the neglect and devaluation of girls. In the month of October each year, we work to highlight, celebrate and promote the betterment and fulfillment of young girls across the globe. When young girls come together, they can discuss what really matters to girls. They can teach themselves, adults, boys, and other girl’s new ways of thinking about gender issues, which will empower young women to take action and to change the status quo. Our goal is to keep hosting this event at no cost to the girls that attend or their families.
We would love to have you, your group or organization participate, donate, or perform! The day will be filled with educational activities but will also with creativity and fun!
