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!
This year, we are celebrating the 5th International Day of the Girl on 11th October 2016. The Day of the Girl Summit and other partners have organized different programs to mark that day to include 11 Days of Action, Girls Speak Out and the IDG Summit 2016. This year, the 11 Days of Action will cultivate new and diverse voices from every corner of the planet. For the 5th Anniversary of IDG, the Day of the Girl Summit will bring all eyes to New York City, as we raise girls voices to their highest volume ever! Together we are changing the world and together we will help the world celebrate with us! #GirlsForGirls #11DaysofAction #IDG2016.
