International Day Of The Girl 2021

Thank you to everyone who followed and supported Days for Girls’ International Day Of The Girl campaign!

At DfG, we’re lucky to draw from a rich toolbox in the fight for menstrual justice – including tech-forward innovations that help us support and uplift women and girls.

That's why we were so excited to participate in IDG 2021! This year, the theme “Digital Generation. My Generation,” granted us a special opportunity to explore the relationship between technology and the menstrual movement. For this, we spent IDG week spotlighting how DfG global leaders are harnessing digital literacy skills to serve every girl, everywhere. Their stories include:

DfG Ecuador using Zoom technology to connect with indigenous tribal leaders in the remote reaches of the Amazon rainforest.
Project G launching a 100% digital Ambassador of Women’s Health training in schools across Siem Reap, Cambodia.
Yamikani Chikoti leveraging film, TV and radio to spread the word about DfG Malawi.
Alice Wambui of DfG Kenya using her masterful social media skills to garner kit sponsorships for vulnerable Kenyan school girls.
Lindiwe Dladla of Days for Girls eSwatini raising funds and support from fellow MH advocates in a 330-person WhatsApp group.

While technology is far from the only tool at our disposal, it can play a vital role in advocating, connecting, fundraising and delivering education across borders – especially in times of unprecedented physical distancing.

We are so proud of the DfG leaders above for using their digital savvy, resourcefulness and heart to find novel ways of reaching women and girls throughout the pandemic. We can't wait to see that they achieve next!
