IDG News: IDG Goes GLOBAL!
In honor of the 4th annual International Day of the Girl, we are proud to share the various ways The Grail and other girls’ organizations throughout the world have celebrated this year’s International Day of the Girl.
Join us as we acknowledge what The Grail is doing for the advancement of girls rights WORLDWIDE!
- Established in 1921, The Grail is a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) committed to building a world of justice and peace through education and action and to standing in solidarity with those who struggle to overcome poverty.
In celebration for this year’s Day of the Girl, The Grail has planned its very own IDG celebrations in a variety of countries including Mexico, South Africa, Brazil, Portugal, Mozambique, Ecuador, Papua New Guinea and Australia.
From October 1-11th, The Grail will work alongside girl advocates and other girls’ rights organizations in the above countries to advance opportunities for girls, and increase awareness of inequality faced by girls worldwide based upon their gender.
Currently, The Grail has launched an Open Day in public areas throughout Papua New Guinea to display issues affecting local girls; organized small workshop for girls with motivational talks on guidelines to access opportunities in South Africa; shared food and girl empowering exercises in Ecuador; and organized a school rally to raise public awareness of the different types of discrimination and abuse that many girls suffer from in Mozambique.
On behalf of the Working Group on Girls and everyone on the IDG Summit Team, we would like to extend our greatest appreciation to The Grail and other girls’ rights organizations that continuously work towards the global advancement of the International Day of the Girl agenda. Girls worldwide are one step closer to fairness and equality and we have the members of these organizations to thank.
Together we can change the world!
