Terre des Hommes publishes dossier on status of girls26 ottobre 2014 / NEWS, PWA members - awards and media
On October 9th, 2014 at the Presidency of the Council of Ministers in Rome, Terre des Hommes presented the data from the third indifesa dossier on the status of girls and young women in the world. The dossier also contains some insights on Europe and Italy which show that the problems associated with the right of the Girl Child are not ones far from home. It is possible to download the entire dossier here.
The exceptional ambassador for the campaign was Maud Chifamba, 16 years old from Zimbabwe, named by Forbes among the 5 most powerful young women of the African continent in 2012, who said: “The Post-2015 Agenda for Development is once again in danger of leaving behind the girls and young women, not taking due account of the importance of ensuring their quality of education, affordable health services, protection from violence, early marriage and access to financial services. Yet, the investment on girls bring benefits to cascade over the entire society.”
Until October 31st, you can support the indifesa campaign by sending an SMS to 45596 to contribute 1 Euro, or by giving a call to the same number to contribute 2 or 5 Euros.
