International Day of the Girl

Today, October 11, is the first-ever International Day of the Girl. We invite you to commemorate this day in several different ways:

  • Sponsor a girl in need. Sponsorship makes a long-term investment in the life of a girl, her family, and her community, providing greater access to life-giving basics like nutritious food, clean water, medical care, and education — the foundation for a future of independence and hope.
  • Host an event to honor the International Day of the Girl. Your event can help raise awareness of the importance of investing in the lives of girls around the world.
  • Share #BasicMath. Girls + Education = A world of possibilities. Be a part of the photo campaign that shares this message with the world. Print out the Girls + Education placard. Fill in the blank with what educating girls means to you. Snap a photo and share it on TwitterFacebook, and Instagram.
  • Watch the Global Voices/PBS film “I Was Worth 50 Sheep” online for free!
