🎉 On this International Girl Day, I created a video to commemorate the 11th anniversary of the International Day of the Girl, and I want to share the essence of that message with you here.

🌍 This day was established to acknowledge the rights of girls and the challenges they face worldwide. Over the past decade, significant progress has been made, but the COVID-19 pandemic has posed new challenges.

🤔 Did you know?
10 million girls are currently at risk of early child marriage due to the pandemic’s impact, which includes school closures and economic shocks.

Shockingly, in the least developed countries, 50% of primary schools lack proper facilities for girls.

🔦 I aimed to create this video to shed light on these issues.

💪 In my organization, we are committed to these goals, with over 60% of our workforce being women. We have products that contribute to several of the UN’s goals.

👧👦 As a father of two daughters, I believe in the power and potential of girls. They are just as capable as boys in every way. My daughters have taught me invaluable lessons, which I have applied in the corporate world.

🌍 The takeaway is that aligning your personal life goals with the United Nations’ 17 sustainable development goals can significantly impact our world. Let’s work together to ensure no one is left behind, especially our girls.

💭 So, consider how you can contribute to these global goals as you go about your day. Your actions can help create a brighter future for all.
Thank you for your time, and have a fantastic day! 🙌
