Shout-out to the girls foundation from the winners of the school uniform
The girls foundation is a project set up to enlighten young ladies of their
norms and value, advocate for the girl-child, encourage and support them
with the little we can.
We believe the girl-child can bring about change in our society. Women are
essential to the nation because they take care of its children, the children
are the future leaders of the nation, if you are familiar with the bible you
must have heard of this verse “train up a child in the way he should go and
when he is old he won‟t depart from it”.
Girls foundation was founded by a group of selfless ladies, it is a nongovernmental organization an d believes in decentralization.
- To enlighten youths of their purpose in life. We believe once you
know the truth and purpose of your existence you are free, the
journey to success and failure now lies in your hands.
- Rape free society- Rape is a sexual assault carried out against a
person forcefully. The rate at which girls are being raped these days
is alarming, we are also humans and we deserve respect. Most rape
victims suffer from trauma and post-traumatic stress disorder, serious
injuries and in some cases pregnancy and sexually transmitted
- Fight against domestic violence- it is also known as intimate partner
violence, domestic abuse or family violence ; it's a form of violence
committed in a domestic or family setting, such as in marriage or
cohabitation. It is called intimate partner violence when committed by
spouse and called family violence when it involves the kids, parents
or elders. Domestic violence has several effects on human that's is why girls foundation is picking it up. Effects of domestic violence
1.) Physical effect: This involves bruises round the victim, broken
wrists, shortness of breath etc.
2.) Mental effect: This involves PTSD (post-traumatic stress),
pressing, drug abuse, suicidal thoughts etc.
3.) Emotional effect: This involves feeling unworthy, hopeless and not
4.) It affects the development of the kids and they suffer from
depression, anxiety, fear etc
Domestic violence always produces an international cycles of
violence. Funny, only few people see themselves as being abused;
considering it as family matter.
- Girl education: Some people still believe that training a female child is
a waste of time and money 'cause they feel she'd still end up in the
kitchen, well sorry to disappoint you but ladies can do much more
than just being house wives, lots of educated women are doing fine in
our society today. Every child deserves equal right to education.
We don't think anyone should be treated differently because of their
gender, we are all one and it's high time we realized that.
The primary aim of the girls foundation is to enlighten girls and increase
the awareness of the steem blockchain and steemit. Giving girls the ability
to create wealth with their writing skills, without waiting for the government
