" One of the greatest challenge faced by today's developed World is pointing towards the negligence of rural girls/women around the globe." 

I participated as a student delegate and good will ambassador of Pakistan in ; the International Congress of Youth Voices, USA 2019. My preferred and utmost highlighted cause was to throw light on  the importance rural girls/women around the globe. This is because I "myself" belong to a remote area. An area where there is no education, health improvements or standard of life. I'm the survival among more than hundreds of victims into my area. I believe I can be a voice for them. That is why I chose to speak about rural girls/women. 

My father taught me one of the greatest lesson through his struggles; being from shepherd to an educationist. Now, educating 500 children each year.  He believes in  ; die of hunger but not of illiteracy. Meanwhile, my mother has some magical inspiration as she believes in ; not to die with power rather die with some identity.  

I believe the rural girls/women plays a key role in striving for their food securities, shelter and more involved into reproduction. They are spending much more time in bearing the domestic labor. Yet, around the globe, they are facing persistence structural constraints that are preventing them to have their human rights. Pardon me! I've to disclose one of the greatest harsh reality ; rural girls/women in this world as compared to the urban girls/women have to face more domestic labor, food insecurities and cultural  blockades. Even, sometimes,  they have their lives on threat because of ; 

  • Domestic labor  
  • No basic or formal education 
  • Lacking influence or power 
  • Lacking participation into social/economical/political and civil developments

What I seek? I seek change for rural girls/women around the globe. I believe rural women can equally contribute into this world as if given equal opportunities and facilities. I believe in giving equal and basic education to each and every girls into remote areas. I believe in removing extreme poverty and hunger of the remote areas. 

" I believe women participation into world's developments can bring more healthier families, assured education for children, better health improvements, economy upraise and environmental sustainability. Development is unthinkable where half of the population is marginalized. Women comprises almost have of the population of every country, but a high majority of the population that is living under poverty. Hence, empowering women alone can alleviate more than half of the poverty in the world. Moreover, empowered women can empower their family and society."

Nabila,
I so agree that the well being of rural women and girls must be a focus. How good to read that this is a priority for you. Your parents have given you beautiful inspiration, and the the International Congress of Youth Voices, USA 2019 has now absorbed your important message. What a great photo of you giving your speech, and how empowering to see all of you together. The issues you raise must be at the forefront of all we do.

Hi Nabila,

Thanks for sharing your update, mission, links, and inspiring photos and message. You, and your parents, must be very proud of the woman that you are, the work that you're doing and the mission you are creating and going after. I'm looking forward to seeing more posts from you and seeing what important work you do and what you create:-)

You may want to submit your story for one of the story calls under the "Voices Rising" tab, such as this one: https://www.worldpulse.com/raise-your-voice/economic-power, so that more people can hear, and celebrate, the work you are planning to do.

Hello, Nabila,

You have great parents and they raised you well. I applaud you for doing something for women and girls in rural areas. They miss a lot of opportunities and are married off at a young age. This is a very good cause and a powerful call, too.

I believe in you. I hope you will consider being an Ambassador of World Pulse, too. :)
Thank you for sharing!
