On December 19, 2011, the United
Nations General Assembly adopted Resolution 66/170 to
declare 11 October as the International Day of the Girl Child,
to recognize girls’ rights and the unique challenges girls face around the
world. 


For its second observance, this year’s Day will focus on “Innovating for Girls’
Education”.
The fulfillment of
girls’ right to education is first and foremost an obligation and
moral imperative.

The international day of
the girl child initiative began as a project of plan international
non-governmental organization that operates worldwide. The idea for an
international day of observance and celebration grew out of plan
international’s Because I Am A Girl campaign, which raises awareness of the
importance of nurturing girls globally and in developing countries in
particular.

Plan International representatives in Canada
approached the Canadian federal government seek support for the initiative.

In the light of
the above, The Heartminders project, under her teenage project, Naija Teenz Cub
will be joining the rest of the world on the 11th day of October,
2013.

We are hereby
request the honor of your presence as a guest speaker to the prestigious Queens
College, Yaba, Lagos to celebrate the girls in a seminar tagged: GIRL
POWER-ABOVE AND BEYOND THE LOOK.
Because she is a girl child.
Thank you.
