The biggest number of the women who die while giving birth involve the adolescent girls. This is always because their bodies are not yet ready to carry pregnancy or handle child birth process. Its so hurting to know that in most cases , parents are involved in forcing these girls to get married.
we must stand together to challenge all the social cultural beliefs and power structures that dehumanize and enslave the girls right way from our families, communities and the country as whole!
The girls must be accorded equal opportunities, equal chances and support needed as boys to enjoy their human rights, including right to quality education! We must as well advocate for Gender responsive budgeting in education and other sectors to support the empowerment and wellbeing of a girl child!
It must start #Now, This must start with you and me! Cheers!
