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!!!!!

The international day of elimination of violence against women and girls
 
Last year,in the UK alone, an estimated 1.6 million women aged 16 to 74 years were victims of domestic violence.

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 info@wanduk.org

11 October: International Day of the Girl Child

A fairer world for every Girl child.

International Day of the Girl Child is celebrated annually on 11 October. The main aims of the day are to promote girl’s empowerment and fulfillment of their human rights while also highlighting the challenges that girls all over the world face.

This year, under the theme, “My voice, our equal future”, let’s give our girls the opportunity to create a better world where they can be economically empowered, educated, and inspired.

Girls can do anything and we all have a role in taking action to build a more peaceful and prosperous world for us all. Let’s all celebrate girls everywhere as they inspire, break boundaries and take charge of their own future.

International Day of the Girl 2020 will focus on their demands to:
– Live free from gender-based violence, harmful practices, and HIV and AIDS
– Learn new skills towards the futures they choose
– Lead as a generation of activists accelerating social change

Take action online and engage by using these hashtags: #dayofthegirl #GenerationEquality
