Mariposa Celebrates International Day of the Girl

The Mariposa DR Foundation celebrated the International Day of the Girl this past October 11th with more than 100 girls here in Cabarete, Dominican Republic. This urgent global celebration and movement highlights both the adversity and triumphs of girls through their adolescence. The day aims to affirm the value of an empowered and educated girl, as well as reinforce the campaign for human rights and equality across the world. At the Mariposa Center for Girls, we love celebrating the world’s most powerful force for change!
