What is PRIDE? Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer (LGBTQ) Pride Month is currently celebrated each year in the month of June to honor the 1969 Stonewall Uprising in Manhattan.  As a result, many pride events are held during this month to recognize the impact LGBT people have had in the world.

What is JUNETEENTTH? Officially known as Emancipation Day and also called Juneteenth Independence Day and Freedom Day, Juneteenth is a portmanteau word for June and nineteenth and commemorates the June 19th 1865 announcement of the abolition of slavery in Texas and the emancipation of African-American slaves throughout the Confederate South.

What is Eid Al Adha?

Translating to "feast of the sacrifice”, Eid Al Adha is the latter of the two biggest Islamic holidays celebrated worldwide each year and it begins on the 10th day of Dhu Al Hijjah.

Why Girls? Girls’ education strengthens economies and reduces inequality. It contributes to more stable, resilient societies that give all individuals – including boys and men – the opportunity to fulfill their potential.
