Empower me to speak for the voiceless
Who speaks for the voiceless girl especially the one in the village and marginalised community.I believe the best way to empower the girl child is through education.Don't give them the fish but provide them with the fishing net.My personal vision is to acquire the Knowledge,skills and the confidence to talk on their behalf.How can I write articles to bring change?How can I produce radio and TV programmes to bring change?How can I get the skills to write convincing proposals for partnership and collaboration in search of voicing the concerns of the girl child?
My concern for the girl child is that in the many institutions especially at the basic education the girls are facing enormous challenges.Challenges associated with culture practices,maturation issues ,early pregnancies,early marriages,female genital mutilation and the like.
I just pose and ask myself;what if my parents did not take me to school?What kind of a person would I be today?
I would like to be a voices of our correspondents to first learn the skills of writing articles to target various groups such as the policy makers,the parents the girls and community a large.This training will help me to get a mentor and coach who will help me to focus of the pertinent issues that concern me regarding the girl child.Gaining writing skills will give me the tips on how to generate ideas and even contribute articles for magazines and newspaper readership.This is my desire.
