Today we have a world where the Girl Child wears blue overall, puts on her boots and heads for the workshop. Another day, Jane is in court in Abuja cross-examining a witness. Sometimes, it is Lola in a salon, or Nafisat on call at a hospital in kebbi.
Whilst things are yet uneven, there are limitless opportunities to what a Girl Child can do or achieve. Whether a Nurse or a Teacher, Every girl is unique, and a special creation of God.
Today is for the Girl Child and we celebrate every Girl Child everywhere in the world. We hope for a tomorrow that will be better than today. Where the voice of the Girl Child is not silenced but heard and amplified !
Happy International Day of the Girl Child🎊
