Competition: Make Girls Count
Tell us your big idea to make sure girls count – and you could be sharing it with African leaders!
Deadline for entries is 17 November 2017.
130 million girls around the world are being denied an education — and 53 million of them are right here in Africa. Without an education, no child can reach their full potential. This has to change.
Young people will shape the future of the continent, so we’re asking 18-35 year olds to share their best ideas for how African leaders can make sure all girls count.
How do we get every girl in to school and learning? How do we make sure girls don’t face violence at home, in school or on the street? How do we enable girls to become the engineers, entrepreneurs and political leaders of tomorrow?
Share your idea, and you could be joining the ONE team at the AU Summit in January 2018, in Addis Ababa. We’ll be short-listing our finalists here, and the public will vote to decide the winner. Finalists will each received a hamper of ONE merchandise.
