|A Father's Fear|
|Prisoner by Fher Ymas|
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

The clock is ticking!
Please, watch and share this video...if possible discuss this with every young girls you know.
