“Girls are future leaders, innovators, and change-makers of this world. When we invest in their rights, we empower them to shape a better future for all.

In honor of this day, the FAME Foundation is hosting a workshop for girls as a commitment to nurturing and supporting their growth. This event will provide a platform for girls to explore their potential, express their voices, and access resources to becoming strong leaders in their communities.”  

She also pointed out, “Girls face various challenges worldwide, including discrimination, limited access to education, child marriage, and gender-based violence.

This year’s theme calls on all of us to break down these barriers and invest in girls’ rights.”  

She continued by saying that investing in girls’ rights means ensuring they have equal access to education, healthcare, and opportunities. It means creating an environment where girls can make informed decisions about their lives and bodies. It also means protecting them from all forms of violence, exploitation, and harmful practices.

When we uphold girls’ rights, their leadership potential can flourish, leading to a brighter and more equitable world for everyone.  

Ms Ogunleye-Bello stressed the role of the girl-child further, saying, “Girls are the backbone of our societies, and their well-being directly impacts our communities and nations. When we invest in girls, we invest in our future’s well-being.

So, let’s take concrete actions to make a difference. As we commemorate this day, let’s remember that investing in girls is an ongoing journey. It requires collective commitment and dedication.”
