Empowering girls in Lao
The International Day of the Girl Child (IDGC) falls on the 11th of October every year to recognise girls’ achievements and encourage them to pursue their dreams, uplift their self-esteem and celebrating all their talents. This year’s theme, ‘Girl Force: Unscripted and Unstoppable,’ has a main objective of empowerment while raising awareness on the challenges that girls face.
There are more girls attending schools and completing their studies today with many focusing on their career and future. Girls are also leading global movements on issues ranging from climate change and poverty to gender-based violence and child marriages, proving themselves to be unstoppable.
