This work tend to expose the negative impacts of certain denials in the life of young African girls as well as the positive impact of Education to young African Girls. It is to be noted that as a girl child grows by the day and gains consciousness of its environment, certain forces erupts as a result of,
· Peer influence
· Family background
· Environmental factors amongst other factors Which surround and have direct influence on the girl child. It is often said that education is the key, indeed it is a gift that every child deserves to have irrespective of class, traditions and norms. Education is more like a guiding tool which sharpens and shapes the timid life of children with the African Girl as a case study. In most traditional areas of African countries the African Girl is mostly seen as a weak gender and hence subjected to house hold chores and eventually marriage at a tender age.
In a situation whereby the burden of parenting becomes too much, the Girl child faces a major risk which comes in form of EARLY MARRIAGE and in most cases the opinion of the Girl child is not sought. It should be noted that most early marriages comes with many traumas especially when it is done without the consent of the Girl child, it also comes with many disasters in form of certain illnesses like FISTULA which occurs as a result of a tear(arising from forceful penetration) which causes leaking from the Anus.
Hope for the African Girl child should Create an awareness allowing parents to know what it means to lead a girl child against her wish. Just last year I got to see the movie #DRY by @stephanielinus and that was what motivated this write up. In recent times we've seen a massive break through from the likes of some African Girls now turned major influencers in the world at large.The likes of @lupitanyongo @genevievennaji and a host of many others have broken barriers limiting the success of many African Girls and as such have become role models to the younger generation. Hope for the African Girl child centres on the need for education to be implanted into the lives of young African girls.
