nternational Day of the Girl is celebrated on October 11. It is a day dedicated to championing girls’ rights around the world
Canadians recognize how important girls are to our future.
That’s because Canadians believe that every girl deserves an equal start in life and the chance to grow to her full potential. That equality starts with clean water, healthy food and a safe place to live. It starts with education, support from the community and freedom from violence.
Together, we can create these conditions for girls across the globe. We can show them that gender equality is, not just possible, but necessary. Our future depends on it.
