International Day of the Girl…some stories and what YOU can do.

This Friday 11th Oct is the United Nations International Day of the Girl.

We are excited to be partnering with GetRealLive to create awareness about the state of many of the world’s girls and what YOU can do to make a difference. Click here to see how you can be involved in the lead up to a great media fusion event on Friday morning. We’ll be on blog talk radio with a live Twitter stream on the go and lots of people connecting in!

As a grassroots organisation, we would love to increase our social media presence and create a greater awareness of the challenges facing the girls we support in the Pacific Islands.

Read this story and this one and you’ll see why we bang on so much about this stuff.

This week we would love to increase the number of ‘likes’ we have on Facebook, and followers on Twitter and Instagram. We would also love to increase the number of people who have signed up to our newsletter.

We would love you to share your social media influence to help us get there! You can change the banner pic on your profile by clicking here and you can share our status, invite your friends to ‘like’ or follow us and then listen in or download the show on Friday.

This week my girl took the beautiful pic featured here as she sang and played with these gorgeous girls in Vanuatu. My day job takes me there and to PNG regularly and this week Giorgia came with me. I loved seeing her heart touched by the beauty of island life, often desperate and unjust, hard and heartbreaking, but gratitude and joy are ever present.

Connect with us this week and share the love!

Warmly,

Jane for team ‘a Girl & her world’
