Oct 11, 2012, was the first Day of the Girl Child. The observation supports more opportunity for girls and increases awareness such access to education, nutrition, legal rights, medical care, and protection from discrimination, violence against girls and girl child marriage. The Day of Girls helps raise awareness not only of the issues that girls face, but also what is likely to happen when those problems are solved. For example, educating girls helps reduce the rate of child marriage, disease and helps strengthen the economy by helping girls have access to higher paying job”.
