Photo of the week October 10th, 2012

Tomorrow, October the 11th 2012, is the first UN International Day of the Girl Child... The UN has, through this day, clearly demonstrated its commitment to end gender stereotypes, discrimination, violence, and economic disparities that disproportionately affect girls. In EVERY country, there are still many areas where girls are not given the opportunity, and it is time for that to change. Ghana is doing well, but could do better. In recognition that Ghana's Girls can do anything, if given the opportunity, encouragement and support, we see here young women from rural Ghana building aircraft - the same aircraft type of that are used to take the aerial photos that are normally on this spot each week. What will you do tomorrow to recognise the UN International Day of the Girl Child? What will you do after that?
