World Vision Launches #GirlsCan Campaign to Celebrate International Day of the Girl Child

Filipinos unite and make a difference in the lives of young girls with World Vision Development Foundation’s #GirlsCan campaign. In a pivotal year for global change, the child-focused organization aims to spark conversations and drive impactful change by advocating for the recognition of unique challenges faced by girls in the country.

The #GirlsCan campaign, which aligns with the 1000 Girls global initiative of World Vision International, focuses on empowering Filipino girls and promoting their rights, especially on the occasion of the International Day of the Girl Child. This year, the campaign holds the theme “GirlsCan” to signify the limitless potential every girl can unlock when provided with the right opportunities.

“Through this campaign, we seek to equip young girls with the skills and tools to help them overcome adversity and give them the support they need to flourish. And we hope to achieve this through the generosity of our sponsors and donors who share in our vision of building thriving communities where children, especially girls, have access to education, community, protection, and financial support,” shares World Vision Resource Development Director, Jun Godornes. For Php 25 a day or Php 750 a month, individuals can help make a significant impact in another’s life.

World Vision in the Philippines urges everyone to join the cause and sponsor a girl by October 11, the International Day of the Girl Child, and help forge a brighter future for them. By participating in the #GirlsCan campaign, supporters become champions of change, advocating for gender equality and the empowerment of young girls.

As it marks its fifth edition this year, #GirlsCan campaign will host its first face-to-face event at Ground Floor, Ayala Malls Manila Bay this September 24. The event will feature inspiring women speakers, and discussions with our partners on empowering children and key issues. Attendees will also have the opportunity to network and collaborate with fellow advocates, creating a stronger force for change.

“As early as now we would like to thank all of you for being part of #GirlsCan campaign. May God bless you as you commit to giving children the opportunity to reach their full potential, and for leading them and their families to a future filled with hope, joy and justice,” says World Vision Executive Director Rommel V. Fuerte.
