    Women are nation builders. Because when you educate a boy, you educate only one person. When you educate a girl , you educate the entire family and the nation. Join fight against gender iñequality.

    A girl child is like a field ready to be cultivated, as a farmer (mother or guardian) who loves his farm will start early using all needed materials to help the field flourish to its fullness. A girl child is never to young to know the facts of life therefore empower the girl child from the beginning.

    A girl child is a blessing too and we should all be thankful. They are the future wives, mothers and grannies without we shall we be! Lets stop violence against the girl child in every form of discrimination

    Congratulations in the great wonderful work you are doing for the girls through the girls summit,am a maasai woman who every other day is fighting for rights of a girl child,our culture is so discriminative,girls have the same rights just like other children,their is a special diamond in them,all we need to do is to polish it,protect it and nature it like any other talents.Second in put is that i will be happy to know where the next summit is,so to plan to attend it to give my views and learn from others how girls issues are handled in other communities.SALT is my term that is serving and learning together.

    Staying in a community enables us to understand the WHYS? and at the same time ways to come in.A true nice program you have,need more information.

    Good job you are doing,thank you,
    For maasai girls/women.

    girls are the gifts of god because gods were not live in everybodys house so god made a mother for care us and our future…… so save the girls


    The God has gifted us the Women as our Mother, Sister, Wife, Friend and a family care taker. We should come ahead to joint a hand for women’s growth and happyness in Society.


    The community not taking care of Girl & Women are culprit of Society. They are enemy of humanity. They must think about the natural right of man.

    Looking forward to the day when hopefully, the entire world, will acknowledge that women and girls aren’t propery and that countries that practice genocide on females as a culture or other backward practices, shouldn’t sit at the counter with more civilized people, like other world leaders unless they CHANGE.

    i am undertaking a study of a rural girlchild education and the social practises around her. i am using my experiences as a teacher in a rural area. i need to become more involed with the topics that touches on the girl child.

    I am a Girl-child activist through book writing from Uganda.
    I missed the 2013 summit, but I would really wish to participate in the forthcoming summit where I would like to exhibit my books for girls to learn about their fellow colleagues who have had excruciating experiences.
    I would wish to be updated on the program.

    GIRLS! Are God’s Gift.
    Preserve them with Love and
    Spend them with thrift.

    Girls are Fragile- Handle them with Care.
    Girls are Tough- Test them if you Dare!

    I AM proud to be a GIRL!
