welcome

Mawusi,

Welcome to PulseWire. It's wonderful to meet you virtually. The story you share is heartbreaking, and all too common. It speaks to a need for more emphasis on providing education opportunities for young girls, but more than that—it speaks to the need for poverty eradication so that girls do not have to turn to men for school fees.

Have you seen the video "The Girl Effect"? It speaks to the possibilities that can happen when young girls are empowered. You can see it here: http://worldpulse.com/magazine/spotlights/watch-it-the-girl-effect

Please do share more about yourself and your country on PulseWire. We do not have many users from Togo, and I would love to learn more about your homeland!
