The Girl Effect Campaign

A Father's Fear

Prisoner by Fher Ymas
. The issue is something we just can't ignore and simply let those brave ladies fight for these cause. As a father who according to the video you are about to watch (and I strongly suggest that you watch very intently...) had this sudden wake up call...I mean, my daughter is now six years old and that    "the clock is ticking" for me and my wife...another six years more and my daughter will be facing the challenges these girls are experiencing. That's not a life I would ever dream for my daughter. 
   I let the image settle for awhile on my head. Well, this is my daughter, I am providing him with an education she needed and hope so will continue as long as I can....BUT once I step back...just a stone throw away from where we live, I have seen similar stories of these young girls, having children before they turn 18. I saw how their lives are wasted in something that could have been avoided if they had the chance for a good education. 
   So I am joining this campaign for bloggers worldwide...with a hope to help in my little gesture to at least contribute in their wellness and to lessen those sinister girl effect and raise more awareness to what potential a girl could do.
   Here's how we can help as I grabbed one campaign from a blogger:



"SHE IS THE WORLD’S MOST POWERFUL FORCE FOR CHANGE.
An adolescent girl stands at the doorway of adulthood. If she stays in school, remains healthy, and gains skills, she will marry later, have fewer and healthier children, and earn an income that she’ll invest back into her family.
Her alternative is the path laid down by poverty. She’ll leave school early, marry too young, and miss the chance to reach her full human potential. Her tragedy, multiplied by the 600 million adolescent girls throughout the developing world – contributes to the endless cycle of poverty.
We know that adolescent girls are the key to breaking this cycle. Yet today only a tiny fraction of international aid is spent on her needs.
That’s why we’re here. For them, their families, and us all." Quote Fromhttp://www.coalitionforadolescentgirls.org/why_girls
