As an organization working towards promoting global education for all, it is important to us to show support for our fellow global education advocates. So when we learned about the LitWorld Stand Up for Girls campaign, we decided to help spread the word.
LitWorld, an organization working towards achieving global literacy, asks you to Stand Up for Girls this 11th of October.
The campaign is an effort to gather global support for increasing female literacy rates. According to LitWorld, “523 million girls and women worldwide cannot read or write. Let us stand together to champion the right of all girls to be fierce, fearless and free.”
The campaign aims to educate women in the basic skills that will help them live full, prosperous and fun lives, from writing their names and farming their land to riding a subway and going to college.
To show your support, and to learn more about how you can be involved in the campaign, such as participating in the LitWorld Photo Contest or planning your own Stand Up for Girls event, visit litworld.org. You can also register to participate in Stand Up for Girls here.
Stand with us for female literacy!
