This is the 3rd Edition of the event to mark International Day of the Girl Child I will be organizing. I have never been physically present for any Edition but I appreciate the support system I have in friends and those who key into this vision who ensure that everything goes on smoothly. Thanks to everyone who has been holding the forte, pulling this through over the past 3 years in my absence. The International day of the girl Child as celebrated by me in partnership with Teach Her Foundation was held this year with over 120 participants including boys and girls, in attendance. The program is aimed at telling young girls not to wallow in limitations. As the theme of this year connotes (I AM A GIRL, UNSCRIPTED ME, UNSTOPPABLE ME), girls were motivated against existing societal stereotypes to dream beyond expectations and live their biggest dreams. Different keynote speakers invited to the program including the wife of the Vice Chancellor of the University of Ibadan Dr. Eyiwumi Bolutito Akinneye-Olayinka, did justice to clearing all doubts on girl advocacy and enlightenment. There was also a panel session where girls got the opportunity to ask questions and listen to experienced men and women. My sincere prayer is that there will be profound and life changing impact in the lives of the students. Years later, may they look back and see the impacts of what has been sown into their lives. Amen. May his inspire a generation of Unscripted and Unstoppable Girls.
