Hashtags: #GirlSummit #YouthForChange
The Girl Summit took place on 22 July, kickstarting a global movement to end child, early and forced marriage and FGM for all girls within a generation. Doing this will help preserve girls’ childhoods, promote their education, reduce their exposure to violence and abuse, and allow them to fulfil their potential in life. Girls’ Globe bloggers Kara Brown and June Eric-Udorie were present at the Summit. June also moderated several sessions as one of the Youth MCs.
