Whatever you are doing, stop immediately and get ready to celebrate. The House of Representatives just voted unanimously to pass the Girls Count Act. The Senate passed the bill at the end of May, which means it now heads to the President’s desk to be signed into law!
Congress passing the Girls Count Act is a huge step toward helping girls (and boys) everywhere reach their full potential. When a child isn’t registered, they are invisible in the eyes of their government and their society. And girls are disproportionately affected.
