Inner Wheel Kandy Metropolitan (District 322) initiates “Let’s Celebrate Our Girl Child”

International Day of the Girl Child is celebrated on October 11th. This was declared by the United Nations General Assembly in 2011 to recognise girls’ rights and the unique challenges girls face around the world.

The IWC Kandy Metropolitan recognised that as the largest women’s service voluntary organisation in the world, Inner Wheel has the power to send positive vibes around the world on the significance of a girl child. The Club initiated “Let’s celebrate our girl child” to share personal experience of Inner Wheel members on how special a girl child is.


The project was by Inner Wheel District 322, jointly among Inner Wheel Clubs of Badulla, Colombo , Colombo Central, Colombo Mid Town, Colombo Nawa Udana, Colombo South, Colombo West, Ethugalpura, Ja-Ela / Kandana, Kandy, Katugastota , Negambo and Wattala.

The participants expressed their joy and pride through a video message. Most videos featured a beautiful photograph of the girl child as well. The compiled video consisting of 33 messages was shared on social media platforms and gained an instant viral reach within the same day of upload.

The Inner Wheel Club of Kandy Metropolitan reached a milestone in participating with 75% of the clubs in the District in this project.
