The International Day of the Girl Child as declared by the United Nations is a day aimed at creating more opportunity for girls and increasing awareness of gender inequality faced by girls worldwide based upon their gender.
This inequality includes areas such as right or access to education, nutrition, legal rights, medical care, and protection from discrimination, violence against women and unfree child marriage.
The conversation cafe Recognizes the world’s 1.1 billion girls as a part of a large and vibrant global generation poised to take on the future.
We recognize how girls’ progress is good not only for girls, but also for families, communities and society at large. In honour of the International Day of The Girl Child, we would be hosting TEENAGE GIRLS and instill in them the power of unleashing potentials against all odds.
The Conversation cafe is an initiative that fosters alternative education sessions and interactive dialogues on pressing issues affecting the community for the sake of self/community development.
Our theme for the INTERNATIONAL DAY OF THE GIRL CHILD is “FOCUSING ON THE GIRL CHILD; Striving for peace and a decent life for all on a sustainable planet.
The INTERNATIONAL DAY OF THE GIRL CHILD is slated to hold on Wednesday, the 11th of October 2017 at the African Artists Foundation, Victoria Island, Lagos by 11 a.m.
