International Day of the Girl 2020

International Day of the Girl 2020
Monday, October 12, 2020

According to the United Nations, one out of four girls, ages 15–19, is unemployed, uneducated, or untrained compared to one out of ten boys in the same age bracket. The United Nations also estimates that 435 million women and girls will be living on less than $1.90 a day by 2021.

This year, the theme for International Day of the Girl is “My Voice, Our Equal Future.” The doTERRA Healing Hands Foundation® proudly celebrates International Day of the Girl and will be focusing on brightening the futures and amplifying the voices of adolescent girls around the world. We support the mission of International Day of the Girl, which includes:

  • Living free of gender-based violence, harmful practices, and HIV and AIDS.
  • Learning new skills toward the futures girls choose.
  • Leading as a generation of advocates who are accelerating social change.

As we continue to affirm girls and women worldwide and support their power as change-makers, we’re also proud to continue supporting many organizations that assist and educate young girls.
