Promoting the human rights of the girl child
Introduction

The Working Group on Girls (WGG) is a coalition of over 80 national and international non-governmental organizations with representation at the United Nations dedicated to promoting

  • the human rights of the girl child in all areas and stages of her life,
  • advancing the rights and status of girls and
  • assisting them to develop their full potential as women.

The activities of the WGG support the following aims:

  1. Advocating for the ongoing inclusion and development of girls’ rights in the work of the United Nations system and structures and in international agreements;
  2. Promoting the active participation of girls as agents of change in their own lives, families, communities and societies
  3. Ensuring that member states successfully implement their commitments to implementing girls’ rights, through monitoring national action plans, policy statements, program development, and resource allocation
