World Thinking Day

Every year on February 22, the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts celebrates “World Thinking Day.”

This year the theme is “Empowering Girls Will Change Our World.” See the official website for info and for ideas about observing the day. 

Oprah Winfrey has highlighted three low-cost ways of making donations that will help empower women and girls. The ideas come from the book Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide (by Kristof and WuDunn).
