I lend my voice to the celebration of International Day of the Girl child because:
A girl child is the pride of the future tomorrow
A girl child is the pride of her parents now and at old age
A girl child is full of dignity and respect and poise and elegance
A girl child may be bitten, put down and disappointed, but within her is the power to blossom and raise again.
A girl child is beautiful.
She is strong.
And best of all,
A girl child is an embodiment of many nations,
A multiplier of many talents.
Won’t you give it up for the Girl child?
