The Children’s Legal Rights and Development Center (CLRDC) celebrates the International Day of the Girl Child on October 11, 2016 through literary rendition of poetry reading and song writing performed by students from Sto. Nino Elementary School as well as St. John Academy, both located in Caloocan City.
The International Day of the Girl Child is an international observance day every October 11 declared by the United Nations by virtue of a Resolution it issued on October 11, 2012.
The observation supports more opportunity for girls, and increases awareness of inequality faced by girls worldwide based upon their gender. This inequality includes areas such as access to education, nutrition, legal rights, medical care, and protection from discrimination, violence and unfree child marriage.
