Join Acacia in Kenya in raising awareness and resources to help educate girls.
The UN General Assembly adopted Resolution 66/170 in 2011 and declared October 11 as the International Day of the Girl to recognize girls’ rights and the unique challenges girls face throughout the world.
The event will feature the screening of the award winning documentary, Graceland Girls, produced and directed by Jordan Salvatoriello.
This evening is designed to raise awareness of these incredible challenges, recognize the importance of empowering communities to educate young girls, and celebrate the differences made by organizations committed to investing in the future of educating women.
Acacia in Kenya will also be featuring extraordinary musical and dance performances by Elena Barker, Paige Zacharkis, Rhythmic Dreams and others.
