International Day of the Girl Child (IDG)

A period should never get in the way of a girl’s education. Period.

The 11th of October is International Day of the Girl Child (IDG). Millions of girls around the world regularly miss school because schools don’t meet their menstrual needs: access to menstrual materials, period-friendly facilities, access to information and a stigma-free environment. This 11th of October, let’s call for action to create a world where no girl ever has to miss school because of her period!

Add your voice to advocate for period-friendly schools on social media

We have created a set of campaign materials for you, including 5 thematic videos with key statistics from different world regions and 2 more general images. The videos and images can be downloaded below. Alternatively, yo can add you voice by commenting or sharing posts from the MH Day social media channels.

How to use the videos

Each video highlights a key statistic from one country. If you are working in another country, you can still use the videos. Combine a video with a key statistic from your country and then call for action. Here’s an example: “Sadly, the situation is even worse in country X, where almost 40% of girls lack access to menstrual products. @[tag responsible Ministry] #ItsTimeForAction

How to use the images

We have also created two more general images. Post the images, and combine them with a key statistic from your country (if you want). Also tag those institutions who could and should improve the situation. As always, the images have a dedicated white space where you can integrate your logo.
