Must See: Girls Around The World Channel Beyonce!

Beyoncé-freedom-for-girls-campaign-2017

Today is International Day of The Girl and as part of the celebrations Beyoncé has lent her 2016 hit song Freedom in support of the #FreedomForGirls campaign which promotes the U.N Global Goals.

The fabulous video which showcases young girls from around the world fiercely lip-syncing to Queen Bee’s song is as a result of a partnership between Project Everyone, UNICEF, and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

In Ghana alone around 27% of young girls are forced into marriage before they turn 18. Directed by MJ Delaney, the video takes us through some unfortunate but true statistics, such as 63 million girls have undergone female genital mutilation, 1% of human trafficking victims are female and also 130 million girls are out of school.
