Supporting girls with children’s books around International Day of the Girl
The International Day of the Girl highlights and addresses the needs and challenges girls face while promoting the empowerment of girls and fulfilment of their human rights.
The UN’s 2019 theme for this day is “GirlForce: Unscripted and unstoppable”. A very important message which we want to support.
“Willow Willpower promotes the message of kids having faith in themselves and their dreams. It empowers kids to believe they can achieve anything they want to,” said Sarah Cannata, founding editor of This Woman Can, an online newshub and digital magazine that helps young people and women to realise and maximise their career and life potential.
Like the book “The Meadow” by Susan Bagdach, Willow Willpower’s focus is on self-fulfilment and the courage to stand up for one’s dreams.
“You cannot encourage people to stand up for themselves enough. I love helping children by telling them stories that revolve around them being good enough, just the way they are.” said Susan Bagdach, founder of the intercultural Women and Girls Health Center IFMGZ HOLLA e.V.
For blOOturtle, the above is reason enough to support girls in different ways
