In celebration of International Day of the Girl, Crossroads International invites you to a breakfast to support the empowerment of girls in Ghana, Togo and Swaziland

Join us on October 5th to help empower girls to protect themselves from threats of violence, stand up for their human rights, become leaders in their community, and transform themselves from victims of violence into voices for change.

This year’s event will feature renowned psychiatrist and psychoanalyst, Dr. Vivian Pender. Dr. Pender has extensive clinical experience treating victims of violence, especially women and girls. An activist within the United Nations, she was instrumental in the establishment of UN Women. In 2016, Dr. Pender edited and contributed to The Status of Women: Violence, Identity and Activism

We are thrilled to have Dr. Pender as the keynote speaker for this important event, and we hope you can join us.
