International Girl Child Day

The girl child is the cradle of civilization. She represents our conscience, motherhood and nationhood. Girls grow into mothers who give birth to teachers, leaders, pastors, fathers, uncles and even mothers. It is said that when you train a woman, you train the nation. There is no gainsaying this all-time truth. Relevant is the fact that children learn most of their attitudes from their mothers. It, therefore, follows that the training the girl child receives reverberates round the nation. Across the country, it is sad to note that the girl child is deprived of education and training on every front. One of the challenges facing the girl child in Nigeria is gender discrimination. Parents discriminate among their children in allocation of chances of education from basic to tertiary levels. At the moment, there are about 14 million primary school age children hawking, begging and engaging in other petty businesses instead of being in school. More than 70% of these are girls.
