International Day of the Girl Child 10 Day Countdown 2020!

TEN DAY COUNTDOWN

I will lend my voice in seeking to re-mould my future until I am heard. My voice and yours contain the same sounds. Ergo, we deserve to share equal chances and equal opportunities.

 

NINE DAY COUNTDOWN

Our collective power lies in our voice. The words we do not voice do not exist. The change we seek will remain a dream if our lips are sealed.

 

EIGHT DAY COUNTDOWN

The voice of a collective people influences a desired change. I am that change the world needs. I choose the building blocks of my future. I am the girl child.

 

SEVEN DAY COUNTDOWN

The voice of a collective people influences a desired change. I am that change the world needs. I choose the building blocks of my future. I am the girl child.

 

SIX DAY COUNTDOWN

The seedlings of my imaginations need the water of our joint efforts. My voice will birth a revolutionary future. Our voices will birth that envisioned change.

 

FIVE DAY COUNTDOWN

You may forget my face and my personality, but you will never forget the imprint of my voice. It sets me apart from the crowd. It spurs me into actions. I am the girl child, constantly fighting for a future that you and I deserve on an equal footing. 

 

FOUR DAY COUNTDOWN

When others quiver to voice their discontent with the status quo, I won’t be backed in a corner, I won’t fold my hands and await the arrival of a saviour. I will rise to the occasion, because I am who the world needs to bring that change right now.

 

THREE DAY COUNTDOWN

My future isn’t premised on my pretty face. My goals aren’t contingent on my lovely appearance. It is based on the baritone effect of my vociferous voice as it strikes like lightning until the walls of impediments that line across my path come crashing down.

 

TWO DAY COUNTDOWN

 

When the voices around me are bereft of reason, ambition, foresight, and animated desires; but inundated with doubts, fears, and limitations, I will stand out with a vehement objection—I have a voice; I have a future. I will use the former to secure the latter.

 

ONE DAY COUNTDOWN

I am an aggressive go-getter. My voice speaks my intent. My words mould my wishes into life. I will not buckle under societal pressures; my future lies on the weight of my capable shoulders. I am a peerless pearl; I light the path and others follow in my footsteps.

This is our goal, this year, at the International Day of the Girl-child. We look forward to seeing you!
