International Day of the Girl

For this year’s International Day of the Girl, we’re coming together under the theme “GirlForce: Unscripted and Unstoppable,” to celebrate all of the achievements by, with and for girls since the adoption of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action and the passage of the Convention on the Rights of the Child in 1990.

But many of the commitments made to girls are left unfulfilled. Each year, 12 million girls under 18 are married; 130 million girls worldwide are still out of school; And approximately 15 million adolescent girls aged 15-19 have experience forced sex.

We were honoured with the presence of Hendon College, Cherry Field and Hope Jon international School.
