Stand Up for Girls with LitWorld and Take Action for Every Girl’s Right to a Quality Education on Oct. 11th, the International Day of the Girl
523 million girls and women worldwide cannot read or write. Let us stand together to champion the right of all girls to be Fierce, Fearless and Free.
LitWorld, an organization working towards achieving global literacy, has launched the Stand Up for Girls campaign to advocate for every girl’s right to a quality education. Our entire civilization is at stake when girls’ lives are fragile because they are prevented from accessing the right to read and write. All girls must be able to vote with their names, read their medicine bottles, farm their land, ride a subway and go to college. Stand Up for Girls speaks to these issues and gives us all a chance, young and old, to show our daughters and the sisters of our hearts that we have not forgotten, that we want the world to be safe, fair and full of hope for all of them.
Visit litworld.org and pledge your commitment to take action and create positive change for women and girls worldwide, and to learn how to participate in LitWorld’s Photo Contest, plan your own Stand Up for Girls Event, become a Stand Up for Girls Champion, and more.
