GB International is helping girls live life to the full on International Women's Day 2019

7 Mar 2019

Today is the UN’s International Women's Day (IWD); a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women - while also marking a call to action for accelerating gender balance. For Girls' Brigade, it's a day to celebrate how God has used GB to transform the lives of 6 generations of girls and women across the world.

Here’s 2 ways from GB International (GBI) that can help girls live life to the full on IWD2019:

Girls Living Life to the Full Challenge
The International President’s Committee (IPC) is pleased to announce GBI’s new creative challenge for all GB members aged 13-25.

What's your hope for girls around the world today? The Girls Living Life to the Full challenge is to produce a creative response to this question by designing a photo, collage, poster or sculpture.

This is an opportunity for GB members to inspire others with their creative and hope-filled response to injustice as well as win some incredible prizes. One of the prizes is a funded place (accommodation/flight) up to the cost of £2,000 to be part of GBI’s Delegation of Hope at the United Nations (UN) Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) in New York City in March 2020.

The winners will be announced on International Day of the Girl – 11 October 2019.
