Please take note of the facts of the day, and visit the YUGA lunch table to learn more and to participate in the photo booth. There will be a pink out on Friday the 19th.
Monday: Did you know over 700 million women alive today were married when they were under 18, and of those, some 250 million were married before they were 15? 
Tuesday: There are 31 million girls of primary school age not in school around the world, and 17 million of them will never get to attend school in their lifetimes.
Wednesday: Globally, in their lifetimes, one in three women are likely to experience physical and/or sexual violence.
Thursday: 14 million girls under the age of 18 will be married this year, most with no voice in the decision. That's 38 thousand girls today, or 13 girls in the last 30 seconds.
Friday: Complications during pregnancy and childbirth are the leading cause of death for 15-19 year old girls globally. Keep raising awareness for the Because I Am A Girl campaign.
