October 11 is International Day of the Girl Child, as proclaimed by the United Nations in 2011 to recognize girls’ rights and the unique challenges girls face around the world. Canada spearheaded the creation of the International Day of the Girl Child and has been an active participant each year in marking the day. In Mumbai, the Consulate General of Canada has worked actively with civil society to mark the day and raise awareness of the problems facing girls in India and innovative work that is being done to address these challenges. This aligns closely with the Indian government’s own efforts such as the Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao campaign and achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals.

This year, the UN marks the 10th anniversary of the International Day of the Girl. And the theme is “Our time is now—our rights, our future” which presents an excellent opportunity to highlight your local efforts and support for girl's rights.
