International Day of the Girl Child – Towards fulfilling the dream of a just world for girls

International Day of the Girl Child - Towards fulfilling the dream of a just world for girls

The world celebrates the International Day of the Girl Child which falls on October 11


Today, the world commemorates the International Day of the Girl Child as declared by the UN in 2012. From denying a girl child her right to live to her right to education and opinion, eight out of ten girls are being subjected to child marriage, sexual abuse, and much more. The question that arises after all these incidents is, ‘Is this happening just because of the gender?’

From the moment a child is conceived in the mother’s womb, the parents fear for the chances of the baby turning out to be a girl. They fear for her safety and perceive her as a financial burden. The aim of the International Day of the Girl Child is to create an awareness in the needs and the challenges a girl has to face while empowering girls and making sure that the basic human rights are not being violated or denied just because she is a girl.

Let’s stand up and raise our voices and take that first step to stopping these social evils and work towards making this world a safe place for girls to enjoy education and freedom in a spirit of equality. Empowering girls to live in a world free from the social evils and violations is not only a basic human right but also an integral part that plays in the economic growth of the country and the eradication of poverty.
