My Voice, Our Equal Future - International Day of the Girl Child
Good Shepherd Australia New Zealand has had the incredible opportunity to be a part of its first collaborative project with Good Shepherd Asia Pacific. For a number of weeks in September and October, Good Shepherd came together to develop a regional campaign for UNICEF’s International Day of the Girl Child, which was marked on Sunday 11 Octobr. This years’ theme was 'My Voice, Our Equal Future' - with the day aiming to promote girls’ empowerment and fulfilment of their human rights.
To officially launch the campaign, Good Shepherd conducted a live stream on International Day of the Girl, Sunday 11 October.
The live stream featured a panel discussion with girls from Asia Pacific who spoke about child marriage, online child exploitation, migration, and access to education; all common issues faced by girls in the Asia Pacific region.
