By the time the doors opened to kick off our Unite for Girls Tour in New York, brought to you by our partner Clean and Clear, there was so much excitement in the air!
After check-in, attendees virtually traveled to different countries where they got an idea of what life is like for the world's hardest-to-reach girls. With their passports in hand, guests stopped by the Liberia kiosk and carried baskets filled with fruit on their heads.
They also did some heavy lifting at the Malawi kiosk where they carried jerry cans filled with water across the room. At the U.S.A. kiosk, girls wrote letters with inspirational messages to send to girls around the world.
We were all treated to a performance by Project Girl Performance Collective on the importance of education; as well as inspirational song by singer and Girl Up supporter Lily Halpern. It was great (as usual) to hear Girl Up Champion Nigel Barker speak as he urged more men (and boys!) to get involved and speak up for equality.
Thank you Clean and Clear for helping us make our New York Tour fabulous! We can't wait to come back to New York!
