Second Annual Healthy Girl Festival

Girl Up

In its second year, the Healthy Girl Festival celebrates the value and potential of every girl. The theme this year, Educate Girls and Change the World, was inspired by the courage of Afghani schoolgirl Malala Yousafzai, who was shot by the Taliban for simply going to school. Around the world girls like Malala must overcome extraordinary barriers to pursue their dream of an education, and they need help and support from all of us who believe in the strength of the human spirit and the power of education to change the world.

The Soroptimist Healthy Girl Festival is Sunday, April 27 on the Festival of Arts grounds in Laguna Beach. We will be screening the groundbreaking feature film Girl Rising, local businesses and non-profits will be displaying their products, the outdoor stage will rock with local acts of all kinds, our UN Foundation partner Girl Up will provide hands-on learning experiences and there will be interactive art projects, food trucks and lots of Girl Power!
