#PreparedToChangeTheWorld- International Day of the Girl 2023

International Day of the Girl 2023

International Day of the Girl (IDG) is an annual celebration held on October 11 to promote girls' empowerment and highlight the challenges girls face worldwide.

It is a special day to showcase how girls do not have to wait until they are grown up to make change in the world – they can do great things now!

Each year Girl Guides and Girl Scouts celebrate IDG and use it as an opportunity to learn how to be advocates and make the world a better place by speaking out on the issues they care about and taking action in their communities.

This year, WAGGGS is using IDG celebrations to help girls develop the resilience needed to face the pressures and challenges of growing up in a changing world. With resilience, we can develop the confidence to be brave, to innovate, and can truly feel prepared to lead change in our communities. This IDG we're creating a brave space where girls can feel #PreparedToChangeTheWorld!

From the earliest days of Guiding and Scouting, Lord Baden Powell challenged us all to "Be Prepared”, because he knew that when we build our physical, emotional and community strength, we can overcome obstacles and build a better world together!
