Celebrating the International Day of the Girl Child in Tokyo

Did you know the UN has over 60 information centres around the world? From time to time, we promote their activities and special events on this blog.

The first-ever International Day of the Girl Child was marked this month, on 8 October. Here is how our colleagues in Tokyo celebrated.

A commemorative event was held along with Plan Japan and the Girl Scouts of Japan at UN University.  The 370-plus participants also pledged to “Stand Up and Take Action” to eradicate the poverty around the world. Photo Credit: UNIC Tokyo
