Vickie Robert Foundation has joined the rest of the world to celebrate this year’s ‘Day of the Girl Child’ by creating awareness on the plight of vulnerable adolescent girls.
Since 2012, 11 October has been marked as the International Day of the Girl. The day aims to highlight and address the needs and challenges of girls, while promoting girls’ empowerment and the fulfillment of their human rights.
VRF, who has been in the forefront in meeting the needs of these neglected set of girls recently distributed sanitary pads to them and has also been going to their various communities to identify with them with various resource persons teaching them on the need to be responsibly integrated into womanhood.
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.
