11 October: International Day of the Girl Child

This year’s theme for the International Day of the Girl Child is “Empowering Adolescent Girls: Ending the Cycle of Violence” in recognition of the importance of investing in and empowering adolescent girls and of preventing and eliminating the various forms of violence adolescent girls experience.  According to the World Health Organization women with less education are generally more likely to experience violence than those with higher levels of education.  The ICN-FNIF Girl Child Education Fund supports the primary and secondary schooling of girls under the age of 18 in developing countries whose nurse parent or parents have died. Please donate today to support African nurses and ensure a brighter future for their daughters.
