Commemoration of International Day of the Girl

Mrs. Mary Arreaga shared the International Day of the Girl with girls from the El Refugio de la Niñez Protection Center, a project supported by USAID Guatemala as part of our commitment in the fight against trafficking in persons and protection of the full development of girls. We commemorate this day, recognizing the important work of El Refugio de la Niñez, by protecting the Human Rights of girls and promoting initiatives that provide them with comprehensive care and opportunities for prosperity.

We confirm our support for the defense of the rights of girls and we recognize that many efforts are needed to eradicate the exceptional problems they face around the world. We all have a responsibility to support youth, especially girls, so that they have the opportunities that allow them to carry out their life projects and the freedom to achieve their goals with the support of their rights.
