International Day of the Girl

RGF call to Action:

  Today, October 11, 2023, as the world celebrates the International Day of the Girl under the theme “Invest in Girls’ Right: Our Leadership and Wellbeing”, RGF stands proud of the strides we have taken in championing the rights of girls. To meaningful engage in the celebration, we are having a storytelling and social media campaign to celebrate girl activists who are contributing to the progress of their communities in their own little ways. Also, we held a panel discussion, centered on the theme, “The Importance of Investing in Girls’ Rights for Societal Progress,” to prove our strong commitment to helping girls permanently enhance their lives.

During our panel discussion, we had the privilege of hosting young girls who shed light on the critical role that investing in girls’ rights plays in advancing societal progress. Their insights were not just enlightening but a rallying call to action.

Some of the key takeaways and recommendations that emerged from our discussion include:

    Education. The girls strongly advocated for equitable access to quality education for all girls. To achieve this, governments and stakeholders must increase investments in STEM programs for girls, educational scholarship programs, and gender-sensitive curricula.

   Healthcare and Well-being. It is imperative that girls have access to comprehensive healthcare services, including sexual and reproductive health education and support. Taxes on sanitary products should be removed to maintain the wellbeing of girls and keep them in the classroom. Policies must be in place to ensure the well-being of girls, free from all sort of discrimination and violence.

   Empowerment. Empowering girls should not only be focused on formal education but also through skills training and entrepreneurial programs, and mentorship opportunities to capacitate girls to contribute to society.

   Representation and Participation. Girls should be encouraged to actively participate in decision-making processes at all levels. We advocate for the promotion of leadership opportunities and platforms that amplify their voices.

RGF remains dedicated to the cause of empowering girls and young women, working tirelessly to create a world where their rights are protected, and their potential is fully realized. Together, we can build a more inclusive, just, and prosperous society that benefits everyone.

On this International Day of the Girl, we urge governments, sister organizations, and individuals to join hands with us in achieving this critical mission. Let us invest in the future by investing in girls
