On October 1st The Girl Declaration was launched as a call to action to get the needs and rights of girls on the Millennium Development Goals post 2015. The theory is that girls have the power to end intergenerational poverty if they are educated, protected and valued citizens.
The declaration was made with the guidance and expertise of 25 companies and organizations including Nike, Because I am a Girl, Girl Up, Oxfam, Unicef and Save the Children and many more as found here .
Over 500 girls throughout the world were also consulted for their opinions and given a voice.
Below is the declaration
This is such an empowering and positive movement and I hope many of you get involved however you can.
