DID YOU KNOW?? October 11th was the 5th anniversary of the International Day of the Girl! "The Story of the International Day of the Girl The International Day of the Girl began as a project of Plan International and the ‘Because I am a Girl’ campaign. With the support of the Canadian government, Plan International mobilized an international network to demand the establishment of a day for girls. On December 19, 2011, the United Nations General Assembly passed Resolution 66/170 adopting October 11th as the official “International Day of the Girl Child.” October 11, 2012 marked the first commemoration of this historic day. The General Assembly noted that the Day of the Girl would be about “galvanizing worldwide enthusiasm for goals to better girls’ lives, providing an opportunity for them to show leadership and reach their full potential.” It would also be about the empowerment, protection and participation of girls in all levels of society. Each year, the United Nations encourages communities and nations to come together on October 11th and celebrate the International Day of the Girl." Read more about it here -
