At the 2013 Women Deliver Conference, the Girl Tree provided an interactive experience for conference participants to listen to the stories of girls from around the world. On October 1st,  the Nike Foundation in coordination with the United Nations Foundation is launching the Girl Declaration. The Girl Declaration is a call to action that aims to ensure that adolescent girls are included in the post-2015 agenda. The Declaration shows that girls’ voices are powerful and need to be heard. Simply put, prioritizing girls in the post-2015 agenda requires that governments, organizations, individuals and various other stakeholders LISTEN.

This week during the United Nations General Assembly and the Clinton Global Initiative the Girl Declaration “took the stage” as organizations, dignitaries and individuals showed their support. Two spirited Rwandan journalists Benigne and Sifa continue to dedicate their time and talents to making the Girl Declaration known.

Over the past several months, hundreds of girls have been met with and asked simple questions related to their dreams, hopes and aspirations. Liba and Farwa are two beautiful girls who raise their powerful voices and with strength share their stories.

Plans are underway to reach out to more girls in seven new countries. The movement to prioritize girls on the post-2015 agenda continues to grow. Join the movement by signing the Girl Declaration today!

    I am just starting an exciting project for girls as part of my International Relations (Peace Studies) course. This is exactly my motives behind the project. Can I use these video clips in the training I plan to deliver please?
