Malala Yousafzai.jpgInternational Day of the Girl Child on October 11 looked at ending violence against girls by empowering adolescents. Education is one of the most powerful tools to enhance girls' opportunities, freedom and promote better life choices so they can be forces for change in their families, communities and countries. 

For the day the UN's GirlUp campaign launched #GIRLHERO​, a chance for the community to share images of girls who have inspired us. One of our girl hero's is Malala You​safza​i, recent Nobel Peace Prize laureate, who undeterred after being shot for going to school now fights for girls education everywhere.
