UNFPA Executive Director Dr. Natalia Kanem Message on the International Day of the Girl Child

  • Published on: 08/10/2020
  • Every girl has the right to speak up and be heard. Now, more than ever, it's time for us to listen. Today, as we celebrate the International Day of the Girl, we have an unprecedented opportunity to uplift the adolescent girl, to drive progress in our world.

    As we seek to build back better, and greener and bluer, from the COVID19 pandemic, we can not allow a girl's dreams and aspirations to be curtailed. Her lost potential costs us all.  Join UNFPA in protecting her future and upholding her rights. 

    Because if we invest in her health and well-being, she will transform her world - and ours.
