Dear Great people,
I’ve got something really special to share with you today. Leading African male artists D’Banj, Diamond and Banky W have joined forces with U2 lead singer and ONE co-founder Bono to remix ‘Strong Girl’ – the anthem that celebrates the power of girls and women everywhere.
The original track features Omotola, Waje, Selmor Mtukudzi and other top female artists from across the continent. The guys may be remixing it, but the message stays the same: Poverty is Sexist. Women and girls everywhere are held back, through lack of education, and economic opportunity.
We can help change this.
1 million people have already signed the petition calling on our leaders to take action that leads to change for girls and women everywhere, but especially in the poorest communities.
As world leaders prepare to meet in New York to agree new Global Goals to end poverty in the next 15 years, our campaign is more important than ever.
We invited these male artists to remix the track because this isn’t just a women’s issue. It’s everyone’s issue. We’ll end poverty faster – for everyone – if girls and women, boys and men get involved together.
So join us – watch the remix video then sign the petition and show you stand #WithStrongGirls everywhere.
