 2022 Theme:

"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 changeCOVID-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.

"Baby Girl" of The Maldives

GIRLS UNICEF MALDIVES 1ab.jpeg

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

child-friendly

space to share with their friends.

"Little Girl" of Mongolia

GIRLS UNICEF MONGOLOA 1ab.jpg

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!
