ABOUT DAY OF THE GIRL NORWICH
“Help galvanise worldwide enthusiasm for goals to better girls’ lives, providing an opportunity for them to show leadership and reach their full potential.”
We are an inclusive group who work with all sections of the community to address and advocate for girls rights locally, nationally and globally. We particularly encourage boys to be part of this conversation because they are crucial in helping to make the world a fairer and safer place for girls.
We can offer a range of workshops and other activities for schools and community groups. If you would like to speak to us about this then please get in touch via the contacts page.
Our brilliant logo has been designed by local illustrator, Gemma Correll. You can see more of her fantastic work by visiting her website: www.gemmacorrell.com
