The ISJC will be celebrating the United Nations International Day of the Girl on 9 October 2022 featuring the voices of young Salvationist girls from around the world. Through this event, girls will be provided a platform to showcase their talents, using their voice, expressions, and creativity celebrating 10 years of girls' activism. 

The International Social Justice Commission invites Salvationist girls aged 6-25 years to take part in this year’s virtual celebration of the United Nations’ International Day of the Girl.

Participants will create videos celebrating 10 years of girls' activism, with prayers, dances, poems, and musical items showcasing the passion and work of girls in the Salvation Army.

The deadline for submissions is on 1 September.
