What is the Celebration For?
This year's theme for International Day of the Girl Child is "GirlForce: Unscripted and Unstoppable". What if we replaced "GirlForce" with "Life"? Does this also work? It is important to note that life implies no gender and no gender restrictions. Girls and boys, like life, are "Unscripted and Unstoppable". This chosen theme successfully accentuates the equality of gender which exists, and the strength that both genders possess, which is often ignored or overlooked.
Celebrating at Prime Trust
It could be said that every day at Prime Trust is a Day of the Girl Child. Everyday our organisation recognises the help that is required, and seeks to present opportunities to those in need. Janani Home for Girls is a model example of how we can attempt to achieve gender equality across the world. It is also on days such as this that we would like to stop and thank those providing our organisation with child sponsorships. This support has an invaluable impact, and it is heart-warming to know that there are many more people in the world who believe in this tremendous cause; people who recognise the importance of an education, a safe home, good healthcare and a supportive family for girls.
