No Girlchild Must Dropout

Posted October 27, 2020 from Nigeria

World Pulse has been giving me the courage and the confidence to carry on alone, for now, the campaign against dropout among the girlchildren since I became a member. 

I have beeni able to impact on a number of girls through my publications in English and Yorùbá, my native language. 

The Teenage girls who have read Sweet Nightmare, Ọdún A YAKỌ and Abeke ÒRÉKE have built in themselves the confidence to to stand tall by their male counterparts. 

They have learnt that being a female being has not not made them less that normal. 

That have learnt to *holdbdy* and apply Girls codes, especially, the ATM for the Girls, till they get married.  (Abstinence Till Marriage). 

They have been able to realise that they can actually be who and what they wannabe, and leave in the same world as the boys. 

They know good life and living is by choice and that they can Rule their World. 

It is pertinent to note that it is a well cultured and trained Girlchild that will grow up to acceptable woman of substance in the future and not a dropout along the track of life. 

This is the basis and the pivot for my Campaign and Advocate. No Girlchild Must Dropout, NGMD.

I have been able to expose more Girls to the vision, through a direct talk in schools and churches, apart from the reading of my Books. My targeted audience has been Girls and Boys of age between 8 and 15 years, the formative and awareness ages. Trying to catch them young and bend them when they are still malleable. 

I have been able to see World Pulse as an avenue and a medium to reach out to the world through other members who may and would be interested in sharing my views and help to put my vision across to All Nations and GIRLCHILD everywhere they are found in the World. 

I have seen World Pulse as a link for someone like me, performing on a lone tone till I get an NGO registered. 

I am also a registered member Nilowv, the League of Women Voters of Nigeria, and action is almost done with the Official Registration of NGMD, a subsidiary of Space Bridges for now. 

Bridging the gap and the space between Literate and Illiterates Girls through Public Speeches and Enlightenment, and publications of Articles and Formal Books for Junior and Middle Schools, where self awareness begins. 

Anywhere You are, Please Herald it louder, Speak it out as in "Soro soke", in the SPEAKOUT GENERATION. 

No 

Girlchild 

Must 

Dropout.

(ZERO % DROP /0UT)
