Letter from the Editor
Every year since it was established as an International Day of Observance in 2011, Plan International USA has joined the international community in celebrating International Day of the Girl – a day that celebrates equality for girls around the world. This year, we’re telling the world that #GirlsBelongHere – in corporate board rooms, government offices, and leadership roles, and in discussions that affect the political and economic lives of their communities and countries. We hope that you take to social media and join us in the conversation!
Celebrating – and fighting for – equality is a tradition at Plan. Since our founding, we’ve fought for equality and the rights of children because, without equality, poverty will continue to devastate families and communities. Whether you’re a child sponsor, a donor, or a supporter, we’re thankful that you’ve taken a stand to fight for equality and empower children everywhere.
Let’s continue to build on our tradition!
Celebrate International Day of the Girl!
