GirlKIND recently celebrated their 3rd annual “Every Girl Matters Day,” in Abbotsford at The Reach Gallery Museum this past Sunday Oct 11, 2015. The day was officially proclaimed through the BC Legislature and Minister De Jong was on hand to mark the occasion and celebrate with the community. The event was well attended especially by many middle and high school students. Many who attended inspired by the day overall and looking forward to getting involved with making a difference in their communities. The keynote speaker was Abbotsford’s first South Asian woman elected to City Council: Kelly Chahal. She shared her inspiring journey of her life and her motivations to pursue education and how she never quit.
It just takes one girl to make a difference. What are you waiting for? Get involved, join the movement!
