The ISJC observed the International Day of the Girl with a virtual event on October 10th featuring the voices of young Salvationist girls from around the world. Girls were provided a platform to showcase their talents, using their words and expressions to spread awareness on equity, and listen as they embrace the power of their voice.
The 2020 theme was BE BOLD: From Equality to Equity.
In celebration of the International Day of the Girl Captain Mariska Potters, The Salvation Army’s International Youth, and Children’s Officer, shared with us about one girl, trafficked as a slave, who speaks one sentence, and the powerful impact that results.
Because of our partnership with the United Nations, we are excited to promote their events to celebrate the International Day of the Girl as well.
Check out their watch party on this YouTube Channel to hear the voices and stories of girls from around the globe through music, storytelling, and art and take part in the chat to share how you are striving to be bold and building equity for girls.United Nations, Social Justice, SDG5: Gender Equality, Events
