We marked our 4th Annual "Every Girl Matters Day," in Abbotsford today. We held a small celebration with coffee and cake and featured local talent including Saint Soldier & dancers from Dynamic Dance. We had cameras set up to shoot for our EGM campaign, getting folks involved to have their say as to why girls matter. Thank you everyone that showed up, got involved and helped out.

GirlKIND and the Reach Gallery Museum are proud to announce the fourth annual “Every Girl Matters Day,” in BC in conjunction with the UN’s Day of the Girl on Oct 11th A day to call on all communities around the world to recognize the injustices girls face and to celebrate their abilities.

Individuals can help make a difference in our video campaign by having their say as to “Why Every Girl Matters?” We will be shooting on location asking the public this very question. This is a way for individuals to take part in a bigger montage of voices that are working for change and helping to create a better world where girls’ rights matter.
In addition, people can take part in our “Handmade with Love Art Project,” where you can literally get your hands involved as we welcome you to help us create a tapestry of hand painted art with heartfelt messages on our social banner.
Performances by local artists include: Saint Soldier and Elementz Dance Crew. Our Facebook listing can be found here:
Minster De Jong will be on hand to officially proclaim the day as “Every Girl Matters Day in BC.”
