International Day of the Girl Child

Family and Children’s Services of Lanark, Leeds and Grenville acknowledges International Day of the Girl on October 11, 2020.  This is an observance now celebrated annually on this date to promote girls’ empowerment and fulfillment of their human rights, while also highlighting the challenges girls face all over the world.  We know that gender equality is still a global issue and there remain girls in this world who do not have equal access to education, nutrition and medical care, or protection from discrimination and violence.  At FCSLLG we stand in solidarity with all girls in the continual quest for equality and honour every girl’s bravery to overcome obstacles faced every day.
