GIRLS TO WOMEN

lizzymark
Posted March 2, 2020 from Nigeria

Just thinking of the international day of the woman that is coming up,I thought there is no woman today that was never a girl at some point in her life. Come to think of it does any woman ever grow out of being a girl? I don't think so inside us is that little girl mummy took care of and that little girl that played and went about looking for love and attention.

When we celebrate women's day we forget sometimes that the girl is the beginning of woman hood and I feel including he on this day will be a great idea for me

So I will be celebrating this day with young girls 

Shearing world pulse with them as a safe place they could be outside this world and feel the safety they need and shear their fears,hopes,dreams, vision etc and will be accepted for who they are and a encouraged to grow.

The girl child is a passion for me,I remember I never really had any guidance from anyone about life how to go about issues when I find my self in or asked what dreams  had or how I wanted to achieve them. Many young girls today go through that in Nigeria and in Africa.

So never for a moment do I want to close my eyes and pretend I don't see them,it will be a repetition of my life if I do that.

I hope to have at least 10 girls for this interaction and hope we shear stories and encourage each other and find way to grow and be better women tomorrow who can celebrate the woman's day being fulfilled.

We will keep you posted on this.

THIS IS WHERE I AM AND CAN BE ME WITHOUT FEAR. WORLD PULSE.

Hello sister Lizzy thank you so much for your efforts at lifting girls. I am so moved by this to see that these young girls can have a mentor at their very early age. When I look at my life and how I grew up I am sometimes filled with regrets because I grew up with no proper guidance. Enabling me to make some mistakes I would have avoided. Mum was an illiterate farmer and my two elder sisters were almost never there since they got married at very tender ages trying to run away from the poverty at home. No one actually told me about what to expect during menstruation. So I kept soiling myself anytime it came. The first one came as a surprise and I cried my heart out thinking I had been struck by an incurable illness.
My sister you have all my good wishes and blessings with these girls GOD bless you for trying to mould them rightly
