For this year’s International Day of the Girl, with the theme of GirlForce: Unscripted and unstoppable, we will work together with girls in supporting them to amplify their voices and stand up for their rights.

Bangladesh has made significant progress in improving the lives of adolescent girls over the last 20 years. More girls are enrolling in schools and accessing better health care than ever before. The achievement in girls’ secondary education has started to transform the social fabric and is providing girls with greater opportunities. Bangladeshi girls are inspiring, innovative and eager to take charge of their own future.
