More than 400 girls and (and some boys) from all over LA joined gathered at the Marlborough School in Hancock Park a few weeks ago to support the United Nations Girl Up campaign and learn about the lives of girls in Malawi, Liberia, Guatemala, and Ethiopia.
No matter where they live in the world, girls are bright, talented, and full of dreams. But too many girls growing up in developing countries aren’t able to fulfill those dreams because their chances to go to school, stay healthy, and live free from violence are out of reach. The Girl Up is a campaign for girls, by girls.
Her Majesty Queen Rania al Abdullah of Jordan joined the Girl Up pep rally providing truly inspirational remarks highlighting the difficulties girls around the world face.
