THE FUTURE IS MADE A BETTER HOME TO LIVE IN WHEN GIRLS ARE EDUCATIONALLY EMPOWERED AND TECHNOLOGICALLY EQUIPPED..

This is imperative. Power to the Girls, TECHNOLOGICALLY and EDUCATIONALLY too. This how we can have a just, independent and egalitarian Society. 

During the school sessions, those who can must ensure that All Girls (of school age) are found in school, doing functional learning. 

This how we can reduce "out of school children" to less than thirteen million in developing countries like Nigeria, Africa. 

If each one pick one and help her back to school, and they are encouraged and exposed to the use and application of Technology in their learning activities, beginning from the simple android to the more complex Computer System Technology, the singular act will go a long way to giving Power to the Girls for their Future all round well being. 

It is no longer news across the globe that the trends of operations has stepped out of kick and start to touch and move and in most cases, to just pronounce a simple command and you by it cause motion. 

Interestingly, Girls can now apply Google maps to find their ways and this has greatly reduced cases of kidnapping due to Girls asking strangers for the location of their destinations in not so familiar areas. If a girl is not so equipped, there's no how she could have done that all by herself. 

Virtually, all production processes are being replaced with robots at their various levels; from the simple food processor where you put raw yams and collect fine yam pastes at the other end to the most complex production procedures you could ever imagine. Obviously, the power of Technology and the power of the next generation of women leaders are like a twine.

Girls now, are the surely the next generation of women leaders and so, they need to be exposed to technologies and technological development as early as they can be. 

Each one making endeavour to 

Pick one 

Back to 

School (EPBS) in the ongoing No Girlchild Must Dropout (NGMD) mission. 

We are giving Power to the Girls, the next generation of women leaders.
