International Day of the Girl 2022

“Our time is now—our rights, our future”

Girls’ Power Initiative (GPI) Nigeria joins the rest of the World to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the International Day of the Girl (IDG).

The International Day of the Girl Child focuses attention on the need to address the challenges girls face and to promote girls’ empowerment and the fulfilment of their human rights.

A call to action!

From October 2022 — October 2023, we collectively call for greater attention, investment and action on:

1. Supporting the leadership of adolescent girls at the forefront of change efforts, including by hearing their voices, responding to their asks, and nurturing spaces for their inclusion in decision-making.

2. Increasing resources for and investments in adolescent girls, including for the networks and organizations that support quality and inclusive education and prioritize their well-being.

3. Improving access to and uptake of inclusive adolescent girl-centered services at all times but especially in crisis response and recovery.
