International Day of the Girl 2022- Girls Speak Out
September 5 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Our program participants have artistically and creatively presented their artworks and their positions for the International Day of the Girl which will be celebrated on 11 October 2022
(Above) This artwork means that if girls in my community had gender equality, we would have the same status as boys and get treated fairly. Gender equality enables girls and boys to have the same rights. For example, in a family, daughters will also be given the same priority as sons, especially in terms of education and receiving equal amounts of attention from their parents.
Script by Gia, 15
If girls in my community had gender equality, we would be able to improve ourselves to be better and change our weaknesses to become strengths. We can also achieve our dreams. My dream is to become a counsellor so that I can advise other girls to become stronger and to become an example to other girls.
Script by Ella, 12
Hi, my name is Ell and I am 12 years old. The girls and I in my community need to be supported to build our resilience to realize our equal rights as girls. Thank you.
Script by Jesline, 17
The fight for girls’ rights needs me because there are many rights that are found in every child.
For example, children have the right to speak. They have the right to express their opinions to others. Besides that, the rights of protection. Every child has the right to be protected from all forms of harm, abuse, and trafficking.
Script by Yhini, 15
The fight for girl’s rights needs me because we have been taught that girls are not capable of doing things that men are able to. Being a girl, for me, freedom means I am comfortable and confident with myself. Not feeling guilty or shameful of doing certain things just because they do not fit into societal norms.
Freedom, love, respect and care are the best gifts for girls.
