The United Nations declared October 11th as the International Day of the Girl to raise awareness about all issues concerning gender inequality around the world.

This year’s theme is: BE BOLD: From Equality to Equity.

The ISJC is observing the International Day of the Girl with a virtual event on October 10th featuring the voices of young salvationist girls from around the world. We are providing 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.

Join us on our Facebook page on October 10th at 10 am Eastern Time (EST) to show your support for our girls.

This year marks the ninth anniversary of the International Day of the Girl (IDG 2020)!

Every year, there is a free event held at the United Nations Headquarters in NYC that is completely run by girls!

This year looks a bit different as a result of COVID-19, but the event will still be held virtually on the 9th of october.
