When you invest in a girl’s education, she feeds herself, her children, her community, and her nation.
- Prime minister Erna Solberg of Norway
Every girl has boundless potential. And, despite the harmful gender norms that still influence their lives, girls are breaking the barriers posed by stereotypes and exclusions. Today, more girls are attending and completing school. Fewer are getting married or becoming mothers while still being children. And, more are gaining access to health and to the professional skills they need to excel. As entrepreneurs, innovators and initiators of global movements, girls are leading and fostering a world that is relevant for them and future generations.
Today on the occasion of international day of the girl child let us renew our commitment to invest in girls health, education and safety. But, putting an end to child marriage, female genital mutilation and other harmful practices that are holding girls back from reaching their full potential. Girls are unstoppable. Girls can create a more peaceful and prosperous World for us all if they get completely empowered. A girl child is a pride and the future of nation. GIRL means Gift In Real Life. Girls are powerful game changers, world shapers and resilient. Every girl just needs to learn how to use her voice on a platform or even in a playground or even to your parents when you are fighting for your own freedom and should have entrepreneur skills. Then, there will be no one in this entire world to held them back from being who they really are.
A writer writes :-
How can be a girl child,
Has a face of devil inside,
How can be a innocent soul,
Is marked by impurity and all.
How can be a girl is caught,
To leave the breath without being fought.
