Good evening, Yesterday we made an article talking about our outreach today and we are here again to give the Steemit community updates on how it went.

we can proudly say the outreach was a huge success.


The appointment was scheduled for 11am on the 13th of June 2018 (today) and the girls foundation got to the venue as early as 10.15am to start making preparations.
On getting there we had to talk and explain the concept of Steemit to interested teachers which the principal has already told about our visit.
At 10:50am the students were ready to receive us and as at 11am we started our activities.

Agenda

  • We gave a briefing about the foundation and it's goals
  • Gave lectures
  • Question and answer section
  • Gift section
  • And the amazing pictures section.

@faetee introduced the concept of the girls foundation to the students and started the lectures to enlighten the female students of their norms and values.
@meemee continued from where @faetee stopped, she also gave a short story to the students and rounded up the lectures.

@faetee, @meemee and @crystalll handled the question and answer sections together.


Gift section

Gifts were presented by @faetee and was shared by both @faetee and @meemee.

Winners of the question and answer section were presented with a new set of school uniforms and took videos and pictures with the girls foundation.

About us

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 non￾governmental organization an d believes in decentralization.

VISION:-

  • 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
    infection.
  • 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
    includes :
    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
    motivated etc.
    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.

CONCLUSION:-

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
intervention.
