Hiring Agency for observing International Day of the Girl-2021


Plan International began working in Bangladesh in 1994. Across all our work, we encourage children and young people to be leaders in their communities and drive progress on the issues that matter to them. We also integrate gender equality and inclusion across all our areas of work.

In 2012, the United Nations announced 11 October as the International Day of the Girl following global advocacy led by Plan International and girls, the combined effort to formally establish the day. Although UN adopted the CEDAW in 1979 to eradicate all discrimination against women and girls the fight continues to date. Girls’ rights are human rights in all sense, but in-depth study on CEDAW and the human rights framework sheds light on some gaps and challenges which are yet to be addressed.

Young girls encounter numerous obstacles which are unaddressed. IDG's mission is to promote girl's rights, raise awareness of their challenges, and work toward empowering and achieving their human rights. This day not only targets issues such as child marriage, inequity in education, sexual health rights, unfairness in domestic work, and gender-based violence, but it also broadens the movement's horizons on a global scale. According to the UN declaration, IDG is no longer limited to any country or group; it now belongs to all groups, and it now belongs to everyone working toward gender equality.
