October 4th: Congregation of Our Lady of Charity of the Good Shepherd, The Grail, School Sisters of Notre Dame, and Religious of the Sacred Heart of Mary (RSHM)
Day 4 of the 11 Days of Action
Advocating for Justice for Girls Around the World
Girls are more likely to suffer from violence, malnutrition, and lack of education than their male counterparts. Good Shepherd, RSHM, The Grail, and SSND around the world work tirelessly to address these needs and right these injustices. We provide educational opportunities for girls at all levels starting with nursery and pre-school to primary and secondary education enabling them to reach the fullness of their potential, hence transforming lives and societies.
We run educational programs on girls’ empowerment and provide school fees for girls around the globe. We work to end violence against girls, accompanying those who have been sexually exploited, and trafficked. We ensure girls’ legal identity, advocate for legislation that protects girls from exploitation, and provide accommodation and educational opportunities for girls who are building and rebuilding their lives. Within communities, we work to economically empower mothers and girl headed households so that they are able to support their daughters and sisters in their education and to provide nutritious food for their families. At the global level, we advocate for girls at the UN by drawing attention to the unique issues girls face, providing space for girls to have a seat at the table and contributing to documents and programs that support girls such as the L Platform of the Beijing Platform for Action and the Convention on the Rights of the Child.
Advocating for Justice for Girls takes many forms and we hope you join us during our Twitter Chat on October 4th from 11am to 12pm EST to hear more about #JusticeForGirls around the globe.
