WHO WE ARE

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 inclusion and status of girls and;
  • assisting them to develop their full potential as women.

 

WGG works with and for girls by:

  1. Advocating for the ongoing inclusion and development of girls’ rights in the work of the United Nations system and its international agreements;
  2. Promoting 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 protecting girls’ rights, through monitoring national action plans, policy statements, program development, and resource allocation.
 
WGG meets monthly during the UN Calendar year, September – June, usually the first Thursday of each month at  2:00-4:00PM at the Salvation Army Auditorium.
