In life,you've only lived to your perfection if you've at one point lifted a finger for someone in need because Every moment of our lives is a place we've never been
Women and girls out here are still suffering no matter the efforts we put every day to make life better for them,theres still more to be done. Young women and girls live in fear of being raped and killed each day in sub saharan region,Asia and even in the middle East.1 out of 3 women are violated every day and even killed and its high time we ought to come together and make the world a better place with no fear for women and girls.
