WAND UK Celebrating the International Day of the Girl Child
International Day of the Girl Child is an annual and internationally recognized observance on October 11 that empowers girls and amplifies their voices.
This special day encourages us to recognise girls’ rights and the unique challenges faced by girls around the world. It focuses attention on the need to address the many barriers’ girls overcome, while simultaneously promoting female empowerment.
Nations must commit to assisting young girls in developing into empowered women with access to adequate healthcare, skill-based learning opportunities, and equitable opportunity in a world free of gender-based violence and discrimination. Girls are leaders. Girls are change-makers. Girls are driving good and growth around the world.
On this day each year WAND UK commits to raise awareness for the situations of the child girls and all the unique challenges and disadvantages they face. It is our right and duty to continue to raise our voices to empower young girls, inspire them, educate them, teach them to be brave and continue to provide them with equal opportunities.
Let us make this day more meaningful for our girls let them express themselves!!!!!
Predictions estimate that this figure has increased significantly as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
We firmly believe that we can and must end violence and injustice against women around the world and the only way we can do this is with love and support.
On this day we bring our thoughts and actions to raise awareness for those of us who have been victims
of such violations of human rights.
Always remember you are not alone. If you have been victim of any gender-based violence and are in need of support please do not hesitate to contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org
