International Day of the Girl

EmPOWER Girls: Before, during and after crises!

October 11, 2017




Since 2012, October 11th has been marked as the International Day of the Girl. The day aims to highlight and address the needs and challenges girls face, while promoting girls' empowerment and the fulfillment of their human rights.


EmPOWER Girls: Before, during and after crisess


The world’s 1.1 billion girls are a source of power, energy, and creativity – and the millions of girls in emergencies are no exception. This year’s International Day of the Girl (IDG) on October 11 marks the beginning of a year-long effort to spur global attention and action to the challenges and opportunities girls face before, during, and after crises.


We currently support girls in Lesotho, Africa to live healthy, happy lives and to fulfil their dreams. Mamokhele wants to be a social worker to support "kids like her", Litsitso wants to become a nurse to "help with kids with AIDS" and Relebohile has just started school this year and is tremedously proud of her new school shoes. These are just three of the girls in Lesotho who will grow up to become leaders in their community. Today, we ask you to support their dreams by providing funds for education, books, feminine hygiene products, bras and other essential items!



We are so grateful for you support.
Kea leboha (thank you!)
