#SHIPAfrica Africa and the Girl (International Day of the Girl Child)

In many African communities, girls are still not considered children. They do not need to be sent to school, they have no inheritance and sometimes their mother is sent away for not being able to bear a male child. As if boys are better. Words will fail me to recount all the episodes we have had, for being just girls, at the time.

Empower girls, empower women, educate communities!
