International Day of the Girl 2023

11 October was declared International Day of the Girl (IDG) by the United Nations in 2012. Each year Girl Guides and Girl Scouts celebrate IDG and use it as an opportunity to learn how to be advocates and make the world a better place by speaking out on the issues they care about and taking action in their communities.


This year, WAGGGS is using IDG celebrations to help girls develop the resilience needed to face the pressure and challenges of growing up in a changing world. With resilience, we can develop the confidence to be brave, to innovate, and can truly feel prepared to lead change in our communities. This IDG we're creating a brave space where girls can feel #PreparedToChangeTheWorld!



Resilience is our ability to cope with adversity, bounce back and grow through difficult or challenging life experiences. Being resilient requires a skill set that you can work on and grow over time. Resilience takes time, strength, and help from people around you.
