Did you know that the gender gap between boy and girl Internet users is 43 per cent in the world’s least developed countries? This year’s celebration of International Day of the Girl is focused on this digital gender divide and calls for ways to bridge the gap.
One Girl Can and Go Goat Sports are celebrating Day of the Girl on October 11 by launching a global call-to-action through an interactive social media campaign, and partnering with Vancouver’s Gentle Fawn, who has created a limited-edition Revival scarf, with proceeds going directly to support One Girl Can.
This year’s campaign is also encouraging people to share how they are #HereForHerFuture on their social channels, with Go Goat Sports donating $1 for every post shared on Instagram, Facebook or LinkedIn, using the hashtag #HereForHerFuture, throughout the month of October, to scholarships for new university scholarship students and career development programs for new university graduates. Plus, a quarter of Gentle Fawn’s profits from the Revival scarf will go directly toward One Girl Can.
The Revival Scarf from Gentle Fawn comes in two colours, charcoal and sand, available for purchase starting October 11 online. Please join us in promoting gender equality, human rights and highlighting the needs and challenges girls face all over the world. —Noa Nichol
