As part of our International Day of the Girl celebrations, we asked four WOW Young Leaders to record a Big Idea to inspire and inform everyone – young and old! Watch them all below here.
This year’s WOW International Day of the Girl activity is made possible by The Big Give and everyone who donated to our Women and Girls match funding campaign.

Maryam and Nivaal Rehman became activists when they were eight years old, and started inspiring girls in their village in Pakistan to continue their education, when poverty was leading them to quit school and work instead.
