International Day of the Girl 2017

The City Government of Catbalogan through the City Youth Development Office – CYDO – Catbalogan City joins the world in celebrating the 2017 International Day of the Girl (IDG) on October 11, 2017.

With the theme “The Power of the Adolescent Girl: Vision for 2030”, this celebration is geared towards highlighting issues concerning the gender inequality facing young girls.

There are nearly 600 million girls aged 10 to 19 in the world today, each with limitless individual potential, however they are disappearing from public awareness and the international development agenda.

This year is the 5th year of celebrating the IDG and Catbalogan City supports this advocacy and recognizes the importance of transforming the risks and deprivations girls face into pathways towards a better life and a better future for our communities.

Mayor Stephany Uy-Tan herself having two young girls of her own believes in the great potential that our young Catbaloganons possess to shape the community that they will inherit in the future.
