Celebrate International Day of the Girl with Girl Rising

IDG 2013This past July, Malala Yousafzai stood in front of the United Nations and called on the world to stand up for girls’ education. Now is our chance to join Malala and stand with girls around the world to break down the barriers that often prevent them from going to school.

This October 11th, on International Day of the Girl, we all must tell the world that educating girls transforms societies. We know that when girls are educated, economies grow, health improves and everyone benefits. Research tells us that girls are the single most powerful force for change in the world today.

Women of Vision and 10×10 invite you to host a Girl Rising event on International Day of the Girl. You will be provided with the tools you need – inspiring videos, discussion guides and more – to create lasting impact.
