1st INTERNATIONAL DAY OF THE GIRL CHILD

Girls celebrate today, October 11th, their first international day as was declared by the United Nations at the end of 2011 to make visible the millions of girl children who live in a situation of vulnerability without access to education, condemning them to lifetime poverty. These girls are victims of abuse, slavery, lack of access to basic services and difficulties to attend school, play, enjoy and, in the end, be girls.
To conmemorate this day, different events will be held, such as the reading of a manifesto to promote a quality education for all the girls in the world and the lightening which will turn into pink iconic buildings throughout the world in support of girls' rights.
On the video below and joining the first celebration of this International Day of the Girl Child, the UN Executive Director, Michelle Bachelet, speaks to all the girls in the world.
