International Day of the Girl 2022
International Day of the Girl Child is an annual and internationally recognized observance on October 11 that empowers girls and amplifies their voices.
We continue to invest in the girl child projects, through digitalization, quality education, maternal care and healthy living.
Nearly 1 in 4 girls aged 15–19 globally are not in education, employment or training, compared to 1 in 10 boys.
Today’s more than 1.1 billion girls are poised to take on the future. Every day, girls are breaking boundaries and barriers, tackling issues like child marriage, education inequality, violence, climate justice, and inequitable access to healthcare. Girls are proving they are unstoppable
The International Day of the Girl Child, celebrated since 2012, is an opportunity to promote girls’ empowerment across the globe – an urgent task in the face of the current climate crisis.
