SHOMS INTERNATIONAL COLLEGE celebrates International Day of the Girl Child yearly on October 11, a date stipulated by the United Nations. International Day of the Girl Child was first observed in October 11, 2012 by the United Nations. This year commemorates the 10th anniversary of the International Day of the Girl Child.
The theme of International Day of the Girl Child this year is: “Our time is now—our rights, our future.”
The day focuses attention on the need to address the challenges girls face and to promote girls’ empowerment and the fulfillment of their rights.
A girl child needs to be mentored and taught the proper values that will improve her self-worth. A girl child needs to be provided for, cared for, cherished and loved. A girl child needs to be affirmed repeatedly that she is priceless. Parents, care-givers, governments and the society at large owe her these.
SHOMS International College as an organisation wishes to use this medium to inform all female students that we stand with and for girls, we believe in your leadership skills and we believe in your potentials.
HAPPY INTERNATIONAL DAY OF THE GIRL CHILD.
