Day of the Girl Child

Our time is now - Our rights, our future


In honor of the Day of the Girl Child, Ubongo presents a one-of-a-kind opportunity to amplify African girls’ voices and experiences in a fun and educational way! We believe girls’ voices should always be amplified no matter the day. So, today simply marks the start of a journey to inspire a world of Ubongo Girl Champions. We invite you to join this movement to celebrate girls in all of their glory and invest in a future that believes in their agency, leadership and potential.

Host a screening of your chosen girl power episodes with girls and boys (suggested age range: 7 – 14) in your programs, schools, homes, organizations or communities.

In the spirit of letting girls lead, we have created a guide to help you register and set up a girl-led Utu Club to empower the girls in your community.

Don’t forget to use #UbongoGirlChampion when you post about the incredible work you’re doing to celebrate and champion girls — and tag @ubongokids to be featured on our social pages and stand a chance to win an Ubongo Girl Champion award + other prizes!
