Update from Girls United for Human Rights, responding to the attack on a school in Peshawar, Pakistan.

When we heard about the horrific attack on the school in Peshawar that killed more than 100 children, we immediately wrote to Girls United for Human Rights, one of our newest grantee partners, to see if they were ok. This is what they replied to us and agreed for us to share with you:

“We are all fine but some of our friends relatives have been martyred in the attack on school.

We GUHR strongly condemn the cowardly act of the militants of attacking school children.

We are organizing a candle vigil today. We will never ever give up on our future. We are hopeful and we are strong.”

GUHR is a group founded by girls aged 12-15. Read more about their work here.

FRIDA is humbled to be able to support these brave girls on the front lines. We stand in solidarity with them.
