Safe Space from YWCA Haiti

International Day of the Girl Child is coming soon on October 11th and we invite you to join us to mark the occasion!  We are currently putting together a video showcasing our safe space model from all over the world! Join this initiative by sending us pictures of safe spaces in your community so we can include them and give a glimpse to our followers on how Safe Spaces can play an important role in transforming the lives of young women and girls!

How can I participate?

  1. Send your picture(s) to by latest October 8th. Photos can be taken with a camera, smartphone, tablet or any electronic device or can be a scanned print. Please save them in the best resolution possible so we can use them in a variety of formats. Don’t forget to include a short description on when and where were the pictures taken and any additional information you might want to highlight.
  2. Follow us on social media on October 11th using the hashtag #DayoftheGirl and through our social media channels!
