Note to Volunteers
The World Thinking Day award is an OFFICIAL Award that may be worn on the front of the Official Uniform sash or vest.
The theme for World Thinking Day 2014 is girls worldwide say "education opens doors for all girls and boys." This theme is based on United Nation's Millennium Development Goal 2, to achieve universal primary education, and is especially focused on making sure girls have access to education. Educating girls is one of the most powerful and effective ways to reduce global poverty.
Before getting started, please read our Statement of Trust (PDF). You may want to explain to girls that in different parts of the world, some girls and boys don't get to go to school because schools are far away and families can't get them there. Sometimes children have to work to raise money for their families, and therefore cannot attend school. Girls are more frequently denied an education than boys in some parts of the world. In fact, there are 33 million fewer girls than boys in primary school. That's approximately the number of all school-age girls in the United States.
