There is serious need for a change

Since this year began, I have been trying to wrestle with ideas on how to change some one's life especially girls. I came to a conclusion that not much is really needed, it takes a heart, one's dedication and a voice just to encourage a girl child and be there for her in order for her to be changed. During my free time I usually go gather young girls and women and just talk to them and you have no idea how this a transition it has been in their lives, they just need someone to be there for them and to listen to their cries. some of them really have awful stories that lives you wondering!

Fighting for girl rights is something I feel obligated to do basing from the atrocities that happen to them. This year am so much determined to become an advocate for them no matter what. I so bad want to invest my time in helping out in whatever way I can, am so glad that with a few friends in Uganda, we are changing lives of children by helping them go back to school and empowering them spiritually.

Am calling up any one who is just willing to mentor any child in any way to join hands with me to see to it that a girl is empowered!

Supporting girls is so important

Dear Jayan:

It is so incredibly outrageous the wrongs that are done to girls and the way that the media and society disrespects girls.

As a grandmother I am particularly motivated in this arena. I like your essay, Jayan, and I support your cause with my heart.

Keep the faith, Jayanr. Being there for the girls makes a difference. I am so glad you will be connecting with Bea and Ikirimate.
