Today is the International Day of the Girl. We thought long and hard about designing something showing how the Cadet Force empowers girls, but then we realised that empowering girls is our daily mantra. We teach our girls to consider themselves no less than the boys.
Every day, they prove to us that they are proud, strong champions who can stand in any arena and lead the way.
If you have ever been to an Annual Training Camp, you won’t be able to help but to see it. Our Girl Cadets are POWERFUL!
So today, we’ll show some of the ways and places our Girl Cadets have shown up over the last year.
Today the Trinidad and Tobago Cadet Force raises its voice for and with our girls!
