International Day of the Girl Child

In recognition of the International Day of the Girl Child celebrated by the United Nations on October 11, 2021, Family Watch International (FWI) calls upon governments to step up their efforts to protect young girls from sexual exploitation and violence.


Every girl has the right to a healthy childhood free from sexual exploitation. In this regard, Family Watch condemns the programs promoted by UN agencies and donor countries that prematurely sexualize young girls through explicit comprehensive sexuality education. Sexually active girls are at a higher risk for violence, abuse, exploitation and other adverse health outcomes.
