Engaging Men in Accelerating and Strengthening the Advancement of Girls' and Women Rights.

 To both prevent and address the adverse effects of Early Child Forced Marriages (ECFM) requires equal effort by men who are key decision makers in society. Men can rule out issues of child marriages. I believe men can help women make a positive change in the lives of their children especially girls to help them take up future leadership roles in society

 My experience working with the rural community has proven that men mostly make decisions on Early Forced Marriages of their children. When children are married off they miss out on the acquisition of rights to education and other basic rights. The root causes of this issue are complex and multifaceted, including things such as rigid norms that constrain girls and women's roles, value, and choices, and maintain unequal gender relations in the family and in society. It is critical to target Peaceful Positive Social Change (PPSC) in behavior and attitudes as well as to advocate for more protective policy implementation.

As a World Pulse Digital Ambassador, today on International Women Day#IWD2020 i will be celebrating with other women in a gathering in . My other events will continue through out the month of March. Meeting with Leaders, Educators, other Actors at different levels and training Girls from various Institutions on Digital Empowerment Skills and Rights, Training community Key Decision- Makers (especially the men both young and old) to influence Behavioral Change for the acquisition of Women Rights.

Train and empower 50 Women on Environmental protection through Renewable Energy as an alternative fuel and for economic empowerment. An Empowered woman is a Happy woman who builds on happy families. I celebrate all women in my country and the world.

This is a laudable initiative. To see women grow and reach their full potentials,
every hand has to be on deck. I hope things went well and wishing you all the best for the rest of the March programs.
