History about "Take A Girl Child To Work Day"

Twenty-three years ago, Cell C launched “Take A Girl Child To Work Day” to expose young girls to a wide range of careers, aiming to bridge the gender inequality gap. This initiative has since reached over a million youths, with support from schools, businesses, and governments, making strides towards a more equitable world.

In a move towards full inclusivity, Cell C has now expanded the program to welcome all children, regardless of gender. This step reflects our commitment to equality, ensuring every child has the chance to pursue their dreams in a society that values equal opportunities for all.
