Join the 11 Days of Action to Close the Digital Divide for Girls

This year, the United Nations celebrates the 10th anniversary of the General Assembly resolution which declared October 11 as the International Day of the Girl Child, to recognize girls’ rights and the unique challenges girls face around the world.

The International Day of the Girl Child (IDG) focuses attention on the need to address the challenges girls face and to promote girls’ empowerment and the fulfillment of their human rights. This year’s celebration of the IDG demands a continued innovative approach to building connection while emphasizing the inclusion of voices often left out of these digital spaces.

The digital divide, or technology gap, is the difference between groups with access to technology and the internet and those without. Girls and women often have less access to technology and the internet compared to boys and men.

Recently, staff from some of the Mercy schools in New Zealand met online to brainstorm ideas to celebrate Mercy Day virtually, since Auckland schools remain closed due to COVID restrictions. One project that emerged was a 12-minute collaborative video, telling the story of Mercy women connected with a few of the schools.

The video linked here was produced by students across New Zealand who are eager to share their efforts with the Mercy World. Happy Mercy Day!
