This International Day of the Girl Child, ActionAid is celebrating girls’ right to education. Find out five ways you can join in this year and help empower girls.
Nearly two years of the Covid-19 pandemic has caused a crisis of education for children around the world.
But girls in the poorest countries have been hit the hardest. School closures, rise in care responsibilities, child marriage, early pregnancy, and limited access to digital and remote learning have made it difficult for girls to get an education.
This Day of the Girl, we want to let girls learn.
Join us as we raise awareness of the obstacles that girls all over the world face. Here are five ways we can shine a light on the importance of education for girls.
