This year, GFS encouraged people to participate in the UN’s #ChooseToChallenge theme, which looked to challenge gender inequalities, because with challenge comes change.
We have loved seeing the great efforts put in by our girls, supporters and sponsors! Your challenges have inspired us and many women all over the world however, the fight isn’t over. Girls aged 5-9 worldwide spend 30% more of their time on household chores than boys of the same age. GFS are working hard to change the gender inequality by creating safe spaces for girls to thrive and we couldn’t do it without your help.
The #ChooseToChallenge campaign had some amazing responses that will help GFS towards our mission. Some of the work from our girls can be seen below:
And many of our members took the #ChooseToChallenge pose to support the cause:
