Our Time Is Now — Our Rights, Our Future
In 2022, we commemorate the 10th anniversary of the International Day of the Girl (IDG). In these last 10 years, there has been increased attention on issues that matter to girls amongst governments, policymakers and the general public, and more opportunities for girls to have their voices heard on the global stage.
Yet, investments in girls’ rights remain limited and girls continue to confront a myriad of challenges to fulfilling their potential; made worse by concurrent crises of climate change, COVID-19 and humanitarian conflict and crisis.
Girls are ready for a decade of acceleration forward. It is time for us all to stand accountable — with and for girls —and to invest in a future that believes in their agency, leadership and potential.
"As artisans of hope, we derive courage and confidence from our educational mission and Sacred Heart spirituality in a world that calls for just use of power, structural and systemic transformation, an ethic of caring, and openness to welcoming people on the move." (Artisans of Hope, pg. 7)
This year, many girls from Sacred Heart Schools around the world became Artisans of Hope by sharing their creativity for the International Day of the Girl. Below is a video compilation of the submissions.
