Celebrate International Day of Peace – and support girl empowerment!

To mark International Day of Peace (21 September) this year, we are encouraging clubs and districts to prioritize projects that improve the health, well-being, education, and economic security of girls in their communities and around the world.

Shekhar Mehta is asking clubs to take on an initiative, district grant, or global grant that engages members of their community in a project that will protect and empower girls and increase equity by ensuring their access to resources that will improve their lives.

Equality is a fundamental human right, and it's necessary for a peaceful, prosperous, and sustainable world. Still, girls and women worldwide face inequities in areas including health and education and experience significant violence and disproportionate poverty.
