International Day of the Girl
In honor of this years’ International Day of the Girl, under the theme “My voice, our equal future”, IDP Foundation joined in supporting the 2020 digital campaign aimed at amplifying girls’ voices and standing up for their rights. Through promoting the hashtag #IDG2020 and education-related facts across our digital channels, we focused on bringing attention to girls’ rights and the unique challenges they face all over the world.
Around the world, 132 million girls are out of school, including 34.3 million of primary school aged girls (UNICEF). At IDP Foundation we are supporters of girls empowerment. Through the provision of school loans that enable the addition of basic infrastructure, such as female toilets, and teacher training to create more girl inclusive classrooms, we help to support girls in accessing more inclusive and better quality education.
