In 2011, a United Nations resolution established 11 October as the International Day of the Girl Child (IDGC), a day designated for promoting the rights of girls and addressing the unique challenges they face. The inaugural day in 2012 focused on the issue of ending child marriage. In 2013 the theme was “Innovating for Girls’ Education.”

2014 Theme -  "Empowering Adolescent Girls: Ending the Cycle of Violence", in recognition of the importance of investing in and empowering adolescent girls and, of preventing and eliminating the various forms of violence adolescent girls experience in line with the post 2015 MDGs,ending poverty with empowering Girls and Women.

The empowerment and social mobilisation campaigns was sponsored by the "Girl Effect Fund" through their continued support to SODEIT Cameroon "Teenage Mothers Empowerment Project" in Buea, Cameroon. US$1,650 was spent for the two days covering transportation, feeding and ECI materials covering RAPE, INCEST, Girl Child Education and Social Inclusion.
