Tomorrow, in recognition of International Day of the Girl, those great people at LitWorld are promoting Stand Up For Girls. Many girls around the world still find it difficult to access even a basic education, and two-thirds of illiterate people in the world are women. Please visit the LitWorld website and find out the ways in which you can help them make a difference.
Two thirds of all the world’s illiterate people are women. On September 22, we will stand up for girls and their right to go to school and to learn to read and write. Let us join together to launch a campaign to advocate for a transformative new era in girls’ education.
Every girl has the right to a quality education that will ensure she has a lifelong way to protect herself, advocate for herself, learn what she wants to know and be who she wants to be. Every girl has the right to read and write words that will change her, and to write and tell stories to change the world.
