Girl Child Empowerment

It was on a saturday when every member of our school busying himself or herself.I got challenged on how our presenter talked. The speech he gave was about girls empowerment. I got touched because most of the girls in school were being molested and discriminated.Our speaker gave us the empowerment that we should neve be discriminated ever since because we too girls have been challenged through everything in society. All through life many girls have been challenge through everything in society.example is like the parlaimentary seats,job opportunities and e.t.c. Many of the women are being discouraged by others because they find that women are like useless vessels. By i just thank the tysa organisation for coming up with an empowerment to giude on us women and as Girls in general.Many women and girls have apealed and accepted their status.
