You may have heard of the upcoming Girl Summit 2014 to be hosted by the UK Prime Minister in London next month, bringing together community leaders, governments, international organisations and the private sector to build on current efforts and rally a global movement “to end child marriage and FGM/C in a generation”. This event will take place in London on 22 July, and will be combined with a specific parallel event for youth, #YouthforChange, on 19 July.
The organisers have just let us know that there might be a possibility for non-UK based youth participants to get sponsorship to attend the event, and we thought this might be of interest to someone in your organisation or your wider networks.
The application process is still open but it’s a very tight deadline (4pm BST on Wednesday 4 June). Youth must be available to attend both the #YouthforChange event on Saturday 19 July and Girl Summit 2014 on 22 July. The age range for nominations is 14-21 years old. Please find the nomination form attached, and in case of any queries, please contact Lindsay Mgbor, Youth Event Manager of the Girl Summit 2014 directly: firstname.lastname@example.org
The Girls Not Brides secretariat does unfortunately not have access to any further information and we do not in any way influence the selection process.
Wishing you every success with your nominations should you decide to apply.
