#ChooseToChallenge - International Women's Day 2020

International Women’s Day.

International Women’s Day is a very important time for us as a global Movement for women and girls.

It’s the moment every year which we dedicate to celebrating progress, raising awareness as well as showcasing our commitment to gender equality.

It’s about shining a light on the women and girls who make up our Movement and how amazing they all are.

As one of the chosen charity partners of International Women’s Day, we are excited to partner with individuals and organisations, who like us, want to use IWD to accelerate progress on gender equality.

Donate to our Women's Day Fund

By donating, you will empower girls and young women to become leaders, and to learn to stand up for themselves and what they believe is right. You will fund the creation of life-changing programmes, developed on a global scale, addressing the biggest priorities for girls and young women, from climate change to period poverty and gender-based violence. You will give the 10.2 million girls and young women of our global Movement a better chance of realising the equal future they all deserve.

Donate to the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts today.
