The United Nations General Assembly declared October 11 as the International Day of the Girl Child. The aim is to recognize girls’ rights and the unique challenges they face around the world.

What is the theme for International Day of the Girl Child 2021?

The theme this year is “Digital generation. Our generation.” This generation of girls regardless of race, language, ability, economic status need the opportunity to excel in technology skills. Providing the freedom of expression, joy, and letting them live their full potential.

 

How can I participate?

  • Share inspiring stories of girls who are technology innovators to provide motivation and awareness to the public.
  • Help promote more opportunities for girls to access and improve their technology skills.
  • You can also start a media campaign or share facts and statistics about girls.
  • For parents, give your daughter opportunities to learn to code and other technical skills that they can learn to improve their creativity and digital skills.

 

I would like to end this article with a quote from tentaran.com

 

Give her freedom to explore

Intervene to fight for her education

Ride her in the boat of equality

Let her fly limitlessly
