A World at School’s five things you can do on International Day of the Girl Child, 9 October
A World At School, the education platform of Theirworld, is marking International Day of the Girl Child with an article on the five things you can do help the nearly 30 million girls who do not go to school.

So let’s work to abolish it.’
