International Day Of The Girl

11th October 2021

The International Day of the Girl is celebrated on October 11th. It was declared by the UN to promote girls’ empowerment and the fulfilment of their human rights.

This year’s theme is “Digital generation. Our generation…” calling for equal access to the internet and digital devices for girls, and investments to facilitate opportunities to safely access.

Almost 50% of the world’s population is still offline and in certain parts of the world, 70% of girls do not have mobile devices, access to internet and digital literacy.

Leaders from civil society and youth movements made commitments to provide equitable opportunities to girls’ digital access and inclusion.
