Celebrate a girl’s right to reach her potential
Spread the word about giving girls the chance to thrive
We believe girls deserve every opportunity to succeed, so today we want to promote their rights on this International Day of the Girl Child.
The special day is part of a global commitment. “Let us recommit to supporting every girl to develop her skills, enter the workforce on equal terms and reach her full potential,” says António Guterres, secretary-general to the United Nations.
This year the theme for the special day is to provide skilled training to the 600-million adolescent girls who will enter the workforce in the next 10 years — 90 percent of whom live in developing countries. The goal is to prevent these youth from working in the informal sector where they are vulnerable to abuse and exploitation.
At Christian Children’s Fund of Canada, we believe in providing girls with the opportunity to go to school, realize their full potential and reach their dreams.
To support girls around the world, visit our gift catalogue today and keep a girl in school for a year. Learn more.
