A short diary of my trip to New York City, where I attended the UN General Assembly and saw the Sustainable Development Goals adopted. I was there to tell world leaders to place girls’ rights at the centre of the agenda.
Everything about the trip was exciting - especially seeing Malala and Shakira! ~ Ghene
The youth delegates up bright and early to get into the UN General Assembly! Let’s end extreme poverty in a generation.
The time to act is now!

Want to change the world? Educate girls!
A girl’s rights and education always come together. Education empowers young girls all over the world
I want all girls to be given the chance to speak out! When our ideas, potential and skills are enhanced and fully supported, we can help change the world for the better.
