Voices With The Girls

Friday, October 11th is International Day of the Girl, a day where we recognize girls as being unstoppable. When girls are trafficked or subjected to sexual violence, they are often silenced. But every day at IJM we support survivors bravely sharing their stories so that girls around the world can live free from violence and abuse. Will you lend your voice and platform to share #herstory?
