"Don't be discouraged if there aren't enough role models paving the way for you. Imagine the future as you want it to be and you will succeed." Cherie Blair

International Day of the Girl is about advancing the opportunities and lives of girls across the globe. The successful campaign to establish the United Nations International Day of the Girl on 11 October each year was led in the US by School Girls Unite, an organisation of students and young women leaders, who aim to advance the UN Millennium Development Goals related to universal education, human rights and gender equality.
