INTERNATIONAL DAY OF THE GIRL
2016 CELEBRATION

Every year on October 11th, communities and organizations around the world celebrate the International Day of the Girl. In our community, parents and friends gathered at the school to celebrate with our girls. In addition to singing, dancing, and eating together to honor the day, we also asked our girls to complete the statement “I am a girl, I have the power too…” Here’s what they said:

“I am a girl; I have the power to be educated.”

“I am a girl; I have the power to fight for the rights of girls to be educated in society.”

“I am a girl; I have the power to be the President of Kenya.”

“I am a girl; I have the power to change my society.”
