I am an African girl child who is so optimistic about the future. Despite the efforts I put together in making a better and sustainable future, my rights are been denied on the other hand. Definitely I know am not the only girl going through this, there are so many girls out there who's rights are been violated and denied and we need our voices to be heard. We are suffering from forceful teenage marriages, stigma, Assaults, Gender Based Violence, Denial to Education and just to name a few.

As young girls, we desire to live free from the above mentioned ills. We need to learn new skills in order to sustain our future, we need to lead as a generation of activists in accelerating social change and with all these, our voices need to be heard because "MY VOICE OUR EQUAL FUTURE"

Hi Sis,
'Really sorry about these circumstances. I'm totally lost for words. However, tough times never last. Only tough people do. You are strong and awesome. I like your charge... "We need to learn new skills in order to sustain our future, we need to lead as a generation of activists in accelerating social change and with all these, our voices need to be heard because "MY VOICE OUR EQUAL FUTURE". That is the way to go, Sis.

Thank you for raising your voice. We can't afford to be silent. I encourage you to please continue to keep hope alive. All the suffering would end one day soon. We would continue to pray for Peace for Cameroon. It is all so sad now, but there is victory ahead. We shall yet celebrate dv.

Meanwhile, a warm welcome to the sisterhood and glad you shared your innermost thoughts in your first post. You are home with your sisters who love you and would continue to take your concerns to heart. Do keep the posts coming. We would want to share your emotional burdens.

Stay safe and strong!

Love and hugs,
E.J.

Actually I must confess that am really grateful for the concern and am glad I do have people out there who love and care about us here in Cameroon and I believe strongly as you said "tough times never last and only tough people do". Yeah that's true and infact I lack words to express. I must end by saying thank you for your continuous love and prayers. Now I know I have sisters out there who feel the same pain with me.

Dear Njobuin,
My heart goes to Cameroon sisters and daughters who are being forced into marriage at a young age. Forced marriage is rape. It harms the body and spirit of girls. It denies them education and their right to play because they are now in a situation that they have to take care of their own children, husband and even in-laws. Girls shouldn't go through this. I hope you and your sisters and friends will not experience these yourselves. Tell me, what is the consequence of saying NO to forced marriage? How about your parents? Are they also a product of forced marriage?
Please write soon.

Huggs.

Hello Nora,
Welcome to World Pulse
I'm sorry to hear all that you have gone through in the hands of patriarchy. You have demonstrated such courage and resilience to keep going in spite of the obstacles in front of you. Good on you, and more power to you and all the girls you are reaching out to!
