GIRL CHILD EDUCATION:THE ROAD TO A POWERFUL WORLD



     In the world, years and years ago, there was a time that education of a girl child was a taboo. A lot of people opposed the motion of Girl Education, arguing that the proper sphere of girls was the home and therefore, that money spent on Girls Education was wasted. This gave birth to the statement that "Girls/Women Education ends in the kitchen".

Nowadays, the importance of Girl Education have become so visible that a lot of people have realised that it is essential. The role of women in the development of the country and the world as a whole can no longer be looked down on.

Women have risen to  a standard where they posses a lot of influence in the society and contribute extensively to its growth and this was achieved through education.

_Education gives women freedom of thoughts and broadens her outlook and makes her aware of her duties and responsibility.
_Education empowers a girl to become economically independent.
_Empowering of girls and women is necessary to fight against the problem of gender inequality.

Women are the bedrock of the society, the home makers and nation builders. It is high time we stop the marginalization of women. Girls/Women Education does not end in the kitchen, it's transmitted, it passes from mother to child.

We should all as a nation join hands to train our Girls and empower our Women, cause its rightfully said" Train a Man and train an individual, but Train a Woman and train the whole Nation".

Child Abuse

Child Abuse
According to definition, a Child is anybody below the age of 18 years, often referred to as a minor.

Child Abuse therefore, is the improper treatment and physical or verbal maltreatment against a minor which affects the child's mental,physical ,social,emotional and psychological wellbeing.

Mental Effect: A child who is abused finds it difficult to develop intellectual reasoning and therefore can become a dummy.


Physical Effect: Abuse limits a child's physical growth,therefore the child may not develop properly.


Social Effect: A child who is abuse finds it difficult to relate with his peers and people and therefore can not adapt to his social environment.


Emotional Effect: An abuse child is down emotionally and has a very low self esteem. The child keeps to his or herself and can not contribute on issues affecting him.

Child abuse which is a menace have become so rampant in the society that the number of abuse cases cannot be over emphasised. A lot of children are being subjected to different inhuman act by both parents, guidiance including the extended family that most people now accept is as normal.


It is also worthy to note that most abuse cases are children who are orphans or those living with relations not parents and are therefore treated lesser than the children of their guidance.


Examples of child abuse includes: subjecting a child to hard labour, the use of deadly materials on a child,rape,staving a child to mention but a few.

Children are the bedrock of every society, the nation builders,change makers and future leaders, abuse,neglected and maltreated children lack the self esteem to make something out of their life and therefore ends up in the streets, most times this children also grow up to become abusers too and the chain continues and continues.

Everyone in the society has an important role to play to end the abuse of children. Show love to that child with you,treat every child fairly and equally,report abuse cases to the authorities.


Together we will protect our children and preserve our future.

SAY NO TO RAPE!


Rape is one of the most degrading and devastating emotional event that can happen to a person. The issue of rape which was regarded as an abomination has become so rampant in the society that it is now often overlooked.

The most devastating of all is the constant rape of children including babies . Recently it was reported that an 11 months old baby was raped in India while a 6 month old baby was raped in Kano state,Nigeria.

This state of affairs have got me thinking and wondering what the future holds for us,the children,our future leaders,our daughters, wife's and mothers are being sexually abused and abandoned with the stigma and trauma that goes with it and we still wonder why the world is turning dark.
Recently,this issue of rape was trending on social media, but when I got to reading peoples view on the matter my heart did a somersault. I saw comments of people blaming the victims for the rape. It was so surprising to see people stating that the victims where indecently dressed.
It got me thinking,was the 11 month old raped in India seductively dressed,was the 6 month old baby in Kano indecently dressed,what about that little girl whose father constantly abuse and tells her its a special kind of hug,was she also dressed provocatively.
Their is no excuse for rape and no body deserves to be raped.
So I stand against rape,report cases of rape to the force and save that little girl in your neighbourhood, let's all speak up and fight this menace called Rape and protect the future we all hope for.
