OCTOBER 11 – INTERNATIONAL DAY OF THE GIRL CHILD at La Alianza, Guatemala
Every October 11th, is International Day of the Girl Child. The day aims to highlight and address the needs and challenges girls face, while promoting girls’ empowerment and the fulfilment of their human rights.
At Asociación La Alianza (ALA) a week full of activities was successfully carried out: forums, internal campaigns, educational activities, among others; during which our girls learned how important they are as human beings and the rights and responsibilities they are entitled to, but above all, they learned the struggle to claim their rights is a struggle of all girls everywhere, which made them feel less alone and part of a bigger picture.
Gender equality should be the right of all girls and women everywhere
