IGCD2019

Today is #InternationalGirlChildDay and it got me having very many questions. As an individual what are you doing to help; 1. Eliminate all forms of discrimination against girls? 2. Eliminate negative cultural attitudes and practices against girls? 3. Promote and protect the rights of girls and increase awareness of their needs and potential? 4. Eliminate discrimination against girls in education, skills development and training? 5. Eliminate discrimination against girls in health and nutrition? 6. Eliminate the economic exploitation of child labour and protect young girls at work? 7. Eradicate violence against girls? 8. Promote girls’ awareness of and participation in social, economic and political life? 9. Strengthen the role of the family in improving the status of girls?

Until we achieve this, there is nothing much to celebrate about #IGCD2019.

Hello Dear Annastanzia,

How are you doing? Did you have an IGCD event? I think there are things to celebrate, but there is a lot of ground to cover. What is the "challenge?"

I hope you're doing well, and having a great weekend, dear.
