11 Days of Action; DAY 2: The Global Girl Data Movement with UNICEF

The world’s 1.1 billion girls are part of a large and vibrant global generation poised to take on the future. But there is gap in our understanding about girls’ lives and what girls need to succeed in their communities. That’s why UNICEF is calling on the global community to collect, identify, and track progress for girls. They are building a movement for #GirlData! 

Follow the conversations on Twitter using the hashtags #GirlData #11DaysofAction and follow @UNICEF @IDG_Summit
