Happy International Day of the Girl Child – October 11th.
We stand in solidarity with every girl child in the world in our advocacy for international peace.
On the occasion of this day, the International Day of the Girl Child, we stand in solidarity with the UNICEF to amplify the voice of all adolescent females in the world in advocating their fundamental rights and gender equality. We frown at all prejudiced policies, practices, norms and traditions against the girl child across the world.
Taking cue from the prestigious Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action, we declare our commitment to “The equal rights and inherent human dignity of women and men and… Determined to advance the goals of equality, development and peace for all women everywhere in the interest of all humanity.”
Our Solidarity with The Girl Child
Joining the UNICEF in this year’s annual campaign under the theme: “My voice, our equal future,” we advocate:
- That every girl be allowed to live free from gender-based violence, harmful practices, and HIV and AIDS
- That every girl child be given equal right to education,
- And finally, that every girl child be free from child labour, forced marriage and molestation.
This day also marks the significant occurrence of the declaration of our unflinching support for, and solidarity with all of our host countries across Africa and the world at large.
