#GIRLHERO CAMPAIGN

See Girl Heroes from around the world!  

In the lead up to the United Nations International Day of the Girl on October 11, 2014— Girl Up created a ripple effect of people celebrating girls!

They asked that people everywhere post a photo on social media of a girl who inspires them – your very own #GIRLHERO – and tag her in the post.

Together with girls and women (like you), we sparked
an
empowering chain reaction for girls around the world!

Ending the Cycle of Violence

The International Day of the Girl Child is an opportunity to step up collective action to break the cycle of violence against girls and women.

Empowering girls today makes for a safer, healthier, more prosperous and sustainable tomorrow.”

Girl Up is an innovative campaign that enables American girls to become global leaders who channel their energy and compassion to raise awareness for UN programs that help some of the world’s hardest-to-reach adolescent girls.
