World Summit for Girls begins in Lomé today

(Togo First) - Today and Tomorrow (Oct. 21 and 22), Lomé will host the World Summit for Girls. This is the first time the event is being held in Africa. Its organization is steered by Plan International Togo.

The summit, which will be mainly online, aims at creating a multicultural, intergenerational, and citizen space for all girls worldwide. It will be a place where girls can interact, improve and decide deep changes they wish to see in their respective milieu. The girls will also discuss their challenges and successes in terms of leadership.

Workshops, roundtables, conferences, and training sessions will take place during the event. Young girls, as well as advocates of women and girls’ rights, will attend, among others. All African organizations are also invited.

“It is a real pleasure and great responsibility for us to host this summit which is an opportunity for girls to express their full potential, increase their voice, and initiate high-level advocacy for their equality,” Plan International Togo declared.

The summit’s holding in Lomé falls in line with the Togolese government’s efforts to promote gender equity. Recently, the country was distinguished by the UNFPA and Plan International for its commitment to fostering women leadership.
