Celebrate You: Celebrate International Day of the Girl
So many things shape our future growing up, from the friends we make, to the subjects we love at school. But there’s another thing that has a huge impact on our lives: our self-esteem.
At Dove, we believe every girl should feel confident about herself, but our latest research shows that 1 in 2 girls aren’t happy with the way they look. That’s why we’re helping 40 million young people build self-esteem and positive body confidence through educational programmes planned up to 2020.
To celebrate The International Day of the Girl 2017, we’re raising awareness of how low self-esteem and body confidence can impact young people. Since the launch of the Dove Self-Esteem Project in 2004, we’ve been working hand-in-hand with teams of psychologists, researchers and NGOs to develop educational programmes on the topics of appearance, relationships, media & celebrities, and bullying. These programmes are delivered by teachers, our dedicated partners – such as The World Association of Girl Guides & Girl Scouts – and directly by parents. And they have been proven to make a genuine difference to girls’ confidence across the Philippines.
Join us and help a girl you know feel beautiful, inside and out, by downloading our resources for parents and mentors. Together, let’s help every girl to become a #ConfidentGirl
