The International Day of the Girl
The International Day of the Girl (October 11th) is meant, according to the United Nations, “to help galvanize worldwide enthusiasm for goals to better girls’ lives, providing an opportunity for them to show leadership and reach their full potential.”
One of the biggest returns on investment for people and the planet is supporting the health of women and girls.
In short, progress in developing nations is directly linked to women’s empowerment in all forms.
