Celebrating International Day of the Girl 2020!
Posted on 15 October 2020
Did you know 1 in 5 girls in Lesotho has never attended school or completed her primary education? Did you know 1 in 3 will experience physical violence before they're 18? Did you know Basotho girls are infected with HIV/AIDS at a rate 3x higher than boys?
Every year, October 11 marks the internationally recognized Day of the Girl. This year under the United Nations theme “My voice, our equal future”, we reimagine a Lesotho that is inspired by girls with equal opportunities, free from gender-based violence and HIV/AIDS.
We know that when girls are empowered and given the tools to lead, amazing things can happen!
Three Pearl Girls share an important message on International Day of the Girl!
