Back to School, but not for everyone

Back to School, but not for everyone

This week over 5 million Canadian children and youth will head back to school looking forward to another year of learning.  However, GRAN's thoughts are with the 62 million girls who are not only being denied this right but also a chance to make their dreams a reality.  

Please consider signing  Global Citizen's petition, one of our partners in education, to encourage world leaders to commit to getting all girls in school to ensure they have a future with choices, hopes and possibilities.

Signing this petition will let PM Trudeau know that girls' rights are important to us and that education will help achieve both gender equality and the rights of girls and women.
