Today, The Girls’ Brigade International joins in commemorating the 11th anniversary of the International Day of the Girl (IDG).
The Girls’ Brigade is helping girls around the world to achieve their God-given potential. For the past 130 years The Girls’ Brigade have been focused on the girl child and we are well positioned to ensure that no girl is left behind.
‘This year, at a time when we are seeing a range of movements and actions to curtail girls’ and women’s rights and roll back progress on gender equality, we see particularly harsh impacts on girls. From maternal health care and parenting support for adolescent mothers, to digital and life skills training; from comprehensive sexuality education to survivor support services and violence prevention programmes; there is an urgent need for increased attention and resourcing for the key areas that enable girls to realize their rights and achieve their full potential.’ – UNICEF
Throughout the day, we will be sharing videos of prayer and messages from all of our Fellowships on Facebook so please share them to create a wave of encouragement on social media.
