24th Jan- Girl Child Day Let Her Fly

girl child

Girls play many roles in the family, society and the economy. The preservation of the rights of the girl child has seen increased support for the almost global adoption of the Convention on the Rights of the Child, as well as the UN Millennium Development Goals’ goal of increasing equality between access to education for girls and boys.

We would love to see the world through the eyes of a girl child. They are pure and genuine. It seems that as you grow to adulthood you lose that innocence and once you do that you will be gone forever. Have you ever seen a child’s eyes light up at Christmas as they stand in line to tell Santa what they want for Christmas? They are filled with joy and serenity as their whole world focuses on that one moment in the moment leading up to sitting on Santa’s lap and truly believing in their hearts that they are right this year as they try to remember to say everything they hope will leave them under the Christmas tree. It is wonderful to be a child and it brings a smile to each parent’s face as they reflect on that very special moment when they too were children.Girl child

Girls or women mean half humanity. Needless to say, no society can truly be considered truly prosperous if its women are not contributing and contributing. They are fundamental causes of social and economic change. However, it is sad to see that without advances in other fields, women still face many challenges of not being able to access appropriate rights or lucrative employment.

Providing quality education through skills development in a safe environment remains an unattainable goal. Restrictions on women’s travel, property ownership and enforcement of laws against girls and women, unknown and unpaid work, unequal wages, many forms of violence against women, lack of safe and secure working practices, all of these are important social issues that prevent women from working.

There must be positive conditions with ongoing policies and ensure that these are implemented effectively. It is important to embrace the lifestyle of girls, as needs vary at every stage of their lives – nutritious food at birth and very young, high quality children’s education and care, the ability to correct discrimination and help them realize their rights.

Clean water

Girl need clean water

Did you know that instead of going to classes, girls and women around the world spend 200 million hours each day accessing water that is often polluted and dangerous to their health. If they had clean water nearby, they could do more: go to school, play, spend time with their families, and start a business – to name a few.

Teach a girl around you

girls education

Many young girls in the United States suffer from poverty, poor schooling, and youth violence. Reach out and contribute to the girl’s life in your community by dedicating yourself as a teacher or mentor. Girl’s education surely going to uplift girls life.

Tell women in your life that they are precious

Want to inspire and empower girls and women? Start right at home, at work, and in the community. Write a thank you note to the teacher who inspired you years ago, grab a cup of that new mom in your office striving for balance, or tell your sister, daughter, or mom how much you appreciate them.

Gender equality is not just a necessary foundation for a peaceful, prosperous and stable future but is not also a basic human right. All over the world, racist and discriminatory practices perpetuate violence against women and girls.

Our vision is of a world where all girls and boys are heard and treated equally, where they have equal access and time to dedicate themselves to education, work, rest and play. This is a world built on revolutionary change – to end the patriarchal, discriminatory and inequitable system they support. These practices affect boys and girls but have an unequal impact on girls, preventing them from claiming their rights, exposing them to harmful practices, violating driving rights in their homes, relationships and communities, and the inequalities that have plagued their lives since childhood and adulthood.

The health and productivity of global society depends on eliminating gender inequalities that prevent girls from achieving their full potential. Although some progress has been made in reducing social, economic, and health inequalities between men and women, gender equality continues to be an impossible goal. The Millennium Development Goals (2000–2015) and the Sustainable Development Goals (2015-2030) include the government’s commitment to empower women and the pressure that change must begin with the girl child.

    You have covered some very relevant points here. We need to start from the basics. Right from hygiene to education-a girl child should be treated with respect and be given wings to fly.

    I always feel that girls are precious. If there were gender equality and girls were equal contributors to the workforce, there would be greater productivity all around. Educate a girl and you educate a family is very true.

    What a wonderful post it is. In a society where girl child is often considered as a burden and where they are even killed before they are born, this message is really important.

    True girl child makes half the humanity and just like the other half, they deserve to be treat well with equal rights in their favor. It’s a sad reality that still women in the world are treated like 2nd class citizens but now the change is coming as we are seeing women take the baton in their hands and rise.

    The world will be a better place when we empower women with education and hygiene. We must begin it at home by teaching our girls to be self-reliant and motivated.

    Gurjeet, you have focused on basic rights of a woman that are very important in life. Teaching a girl child around you is important and that can be executed very well, if we all take the charge of it.

  10. Shweta says: January 24, 2021 at 6:41 am

    It is my wish to teach a girl around me. When I was young, I used to teach my helper’s daughter and she was so keen to learn from me.
    But after I shifted, these opportunities became very less. I wish to start that again!

  11. Seema Bardeskar says: January 23, 2021 at 11:38 pm

    I loved the idea that you have mentioned about teaching a girl child around you. If one is interested in some charity work and helping the needy, this can be such a great way to make a girl child stronger.

    A much needed post after the perfect time though I feel why at all a need to right this arises, the gender description that females have faced for centuries must go away now

    Educating your girl child is essential to build a generation without gender bias. This is the first and foremost step. into the larger goal. You have pointed out some valid information that if looked into would change the lives of scores of girls out there.

  14. Rakhi Jayashankar says: January 23, 2021 at 3:44 pm

    I never knew that having access to clean water itself can change a girl’s academics. This is a very novel thought that you have shared. Thank you so much for this

  15. Surbhi Prapanna says: January 21, 2021 at 11:16 pm

    I am glad you had talked about girl education in this post and asked others to help in support this cause. Yes I agree that each person if make a decision to teach at least one girl than we will have a better society for girls in future.
