Every day is 'Day Of The Girl' at Women LEAD Nepal
The International Day of the Girl (IDG) – observed annually on 11 October – is a global platform to advocate for the full spectrum of girls’ rights.
“International Day of the Girl Child 2023 is a global observance dedicated to highlighting the challenges girls face worldwide and promoting their empowerment, education, and rights. This important day serves as a reminder of the need to address gender inequalities, discrimination, and violence against girls and to create a brighter future for them.”
Women LEAD Nepal celebrates International Day of the Girl Child to advocate for girls’ rights and well-being. Girls worldwide are raising their voices to demand more space in decision-making to build the future they deserve. Through its various flagship and outreach programs, Women LEAD Nepal strives to promote gender equality, promote equitable learning experiences, spread awareness of child rights, and provide mentorship opportunities and advocacy platforms.
Women LEAD Nepal provides leadership training programs for girls to help them develop leadership skills, self-confidence, and the ability to take on leadership roles in their communities and careers. We address gender-based discrimination, child marriage, and violence against women through advocacy and awareness campaigns. These campaigns seek to change societal attitudes and promote gender equality. We create safe spaces where girls can express themselves, discuss issues that affect them, and find emotional support.
Women LEAD Nepal is one of the first leadership and professional development organizations for young women in Nepal. Since 2011, Women LEAD has created along-term positive impact on over 4360+ young women and youth in Nepal and has a alumni community of 447+ members.
