Is There Any Hope?

Posted November 19, 2019 from Nigeria

Everyday I wake up,am forced to wonder if there is any hope for a child in Nigeria let alone a girl child who is regarded as nothing to the society. Even our mothers who occupy places if influence care less about what happens to their children in this great nation, everyone is worried and concerned about how to make more money buy new cars,own more property and not building a future for the women and children who would lead tomorrow. Girls are out there looking for support asking for help,while doing that a useless opportunist is taking advantage of their vulnerability and satisfying his desire.

How long will this neglect, hopelessness continue? Am afraid and worried, what if am not able to give this girls what they deserve, who will be willing to hear their cry for help and bring succour to them.

I see greatness in them I see a bright future I see leaders with great vision and purpose, but all this might die if no one sends help. Some of them are getting pregnant every now and again because they have lost touch with the meaning of life there is little one person can. Some have children and because there is no one to support this m or the kids,they give up and go prostituting to survive. 

Hello anyone there!!!!!!!!!!!

Hello Dear Lizzy,

Thanks for sharing your post, dear. I can see that you're feeling overwhelmed? Why do you think that you won't be able to provide for them? You offer them support and love, right? That will continue, yes? I think you're a strong, smart and determined young woman. There's no reason why you can't do what you set your mind to. We believe in you and we support you, dear. Let us know how we can help raise you up:-)

Hello, dear Lizzy,

I can understand your frustration. I hope, too, the girls in Nigeria will have better opportunities and increased awareness of their value as women.

Thank you for sharing your heart with us. One girl at a time, dear sis. We can make it!

Dear Lizzy,
This is the heart cry of a change maker. Take it a day at a time, a girl child at a time. I believe in your vision. Please share how you're making progress and what your plans are.
