Meet Tabitha, a 16-year-old schoolgirl from @BornoGovt. For #DayOfTheGirl, she shared with us her experience on being out of school!
"I was once like many other girls & boys who are out of school. There was a time in my village when insurgents burnt down the school in my village. I was forced to stay at home for 6 months. Life became difficult as I was faced with a very bleak future."
"Thank God I was lucky to be given a chance to go back to school when schools were reopened in Borno State. I always wonder what life will be like if my dream of further education was cut short. I think about the many girls & boys that are out of school."
"I believe that education is important for everyone, but it is especially significant for girls."
"Investments in girls' education yield high dividends. There's no doubt that education empowers girls to take control of their lives, their families and their future."
"Girls with dreams become women with vision." ✨🌍
"Collective efforts are necessary to ensure that:
☑️schools are safe
☑️gender-based barriers to #education are addressed."
"I believe the time has come to speak out for the #education of all children & youth, especially girls in our communities."
"I call on our honourable Executive Governors to make #education free & compulsory for all children in their States and provide safe & secure #schools for learning to take place."
"Similarly, I call on our Royal fathers (traditional leaders) who are custodians of our culture to embark on massive campaigns among their subjects to take children off the streets and into schools."
"Thank you for this opportunity. I feel privileged to be put on a path with a promise for a brighter future." ✨
