We kicked off celebrations with a call-in show on Radio Rwanda. SHE Rwanda COO Julian was featured on Radio Rwanda to discuss how SHE LaunchPads and our education and advocacy initiatives are help to advance girls' improvement in education. The most popular segment of the program was when listeners called in with their own questions. Guess who called in with the most questions: men! Yes, men called in not only to ask questions, but to declare their support for SHE!
The SHE Global team celebrated Day of the Girl too. UNICEF gave us the opportunity to show the world our SHE LaunchPad as an example of great innovation to improve girls' education at their global event along with innovations from the Girl Scouts, Girls Who Code, and Intel/Stanford.
SHE's Connie Lewin and Ali Sugarman, a SHE intern and all-round SHE advocate, showcased our LaunchPad to an audience of 200+ that included Day of the Girl youth advocates, UN, UNICEF, and Plan International leaders, ABC News's David Muir and actress Freida Pinto!
