“We speak to our peers in school every day about the benefits of education. Our voices are being heard and we are starting to see girls come back to school. We thank Girl Child Network and Aidlink for the training on our rights and for working with our community”. Simon, member of RoC club.
Every girl deserves the right to live free from harm, to be healthy and happy, to make her own decisions, to go to school and to fully participate in family, cultural and social life. On the International Day of the Girl Child, we reiterate our commitment to tackling harmful practices and negative social norms that violate the rights of the Girl Child and to empowering her to fully realise her human rights.
