"Around the World"
"Our time is now—our rights, our future!"
Do you know that . . .
In 2022, we commemorate the 10th anniversary of the International Day of the Girl (IDG). In these last 10 years, there has been increased attention on issues that matter to girls amongst governments, policymakers and the general public, and more opportunities for girls to have their voices heard on the global stage. Yet, investments in girls’ rights remain limited and girls continue to confront a myriad of challenges to fulfilling their potential; made worse by concurrent crises of climate change, COVID-19 and humanitarian conflict.
Girls around the world continue to face unprecedented challenges to their education, their physical and mental wellness, and the protections needed for a life without violence. COVID-19 has worsened existing burdens on girls around the world and worn away important gains made over the last decade.
With adversity, however, comes resourcefulness, creativity, tenacity, and resilience. The world's 600 million adolescent girls have shown time and time again that given the skills and the opportunities, they can be the changemakers driving progress in their communities, building back stronger for all, including women, boys and men.
Girls are ready for a decade of acceleration forward. It is time for us all to stand accountable – with and for girls – and to invest in a future that believes in their agency, leadership and potential.

"Young Girls" of Israel
The Child Friendly Cities Initiative in Israel was
launched as a joint pilot initiative between
the municipality of Rishon LeZion and
the Israeli Committee for UNICEF
in 2014. The aim of the
initiative is to bring a child rights perspective
into the whole structure of the municipality,
with an emphasis on child participation.
Yes! Happy & friendly cities are
the rights of every "Girl Child!"
"Baby Girl" of The Maldives
In recent years, the Maldives has strengthened its focus on protecting children and adolescents. The Maldives was among the first countries to sign and ratify the Convention on the Rights of the Child in 1991. This marked a national change in the way children are viewed and treated – as human beings with a unique set of rights. Since
then, the government has created special institutions,
such as the Family and Juvenile Courts, to better
address legal issues facing young people. They
have also implemented interventions at the local, atoll and national levels, including a national child protection policy for educational settings. For years, the country has worked to improve the
situation for children, and have established a number of
mechanisms for reporting – and preventing –
protection concerns around the country.
Regardless of these successes, however, in the Maldives,
many children are still forced to grow up too fast. The
country’s wide geographic dispersion sets some
families hundreds of miles from the capital,
separating communities by a vast distance and at times,
a rough expanse of sea. Because of this, some spend their
childhoods in remote island communities, far from the systems designed to protect them. Others grow up in one of the most
densely populated cities in the world, the Maldivian capital
of Malé. And some, especially the adolescents, migrate
from small islands to large ones, hoping to attend a
secondary school with more diverse classes. Each
reality can place children at risk of exploitation, at
times funneling them into drug abuse and crime.

"Young Girl" of Colombia
Child-friendly spaces in times of COVID-19.
Adda's Special "Little Girl" Story . . .
Upon arrival in Colombia, her father sold lemons and recycled
to obtain resources and pay for the place where they lived.
Visiting Arauca every day, William visited a UNICEF’s
child-friendly space, a place where migrant children
receive psychosocial support through
games and playful activities that allow them to manage
their emotions. So, he decided to take his wife and
children there while he went out to work.
Since September 2019, Adda, her mother, her sisters and
brother attend this space every day from very early. They
play, learn and laugh while sharing in community. At
noon, they walk to the dining room of the
World Food Program (WFP) and in the
afternoon they return to the
space to share with their friends.
"Little Girl" of Mongolia
Low access to quality early learning for young children
[including "little girls" of Mongolia] is a major
issue. One in every 4 - 5 children do not
access early childhood education
services. Seven out of 10 children from the poorest
families do not go to kindergarten. There is a
lack of kindergartens or other alternative
services. In addition, the capacity of
teachers and parents’ awareness
of the benefits of early learning
are low. Most importantly,
without providing sufficient access to cover
all young children – particularly, the most
disadvantaged children in quality and
inclusive early childhood education,
the country is losing opportunities
to break cycle of poverty, violence
and despair. It's time to learn
more about UNICEF Mongolia!
