International Day of the Girl⭐️ Empower Girls !!!
Educating girls is key to breaking cycles of teen pregnancy.
In my own experience working in this issue about teenage pregnancy in Latin America ​one of the keys is the education. The visibility of this issue and the implementation of medium and long term measures are essential to generate a change. More work is needed on the empowerment of girls. The achievement of true equality in decision-making will develop in equity in life projects.
Gloria, 13, belongs to the Mixe Community of Maluco, a small village in the north of the “Itsmo de Tehuantepec”, Oaxaca Mexico. She lives with her mother and 8 of her 10 siblings who are between 4 and 20 years old. Gloria became mother at the age of 12, a consequence of the constant sexual abuse of her father who has also attacked two of her sisters, aged 8 and 16.

LINK on my profile ⚡️📸👆🏾@TED talk by Christian Rodríguez that took place in Arusha, Tanzania in #TEDGlobal2017 . "If a girl in Latin America get pregnant before she is 15, the probability to have another child before 18 are very high"
In my own experience working on projects with teenage mothers and adolescent pregnancy in Latin America, one of the key for breaking circles of teenage pregnancy is education. The visibility of this issue and the implementation of medium and long term measures are essential to generating a change. More work is needed in the empowerment of girls. The achievement of true equality in decision-making will develop with equity in life projects. Nicaragua is one of the poorest countries in Latin America, the second after Honduras and the one with the highest rates of teenage pregnancy. I decided to work with a background that would not show the social context. We could only say that I give some clues when I intentionally fit the background and the type of fabric used.

LINK in profile ✨📸👆🏾 I am very excited to share my talk that took place in Arusha, Tanzania with TEDGlobal as a member of the TED Fellows class of 2017. "In developing countries, 7.3 million girls under the age of 18, give birth each year....
The patterns of poverty and limited access to education and health care are a common thread among teen pregnancies...Educating girls is key to breaking cycles of teen pregnancy. "

Brazil could have increased its productivity, up to US $ 3,500 millions if adolescent girls in that country postponed pregnancy until their twenties.(UNFPA )

One of the first places I visited and where I was traveling the first 7 months was the region know as the "Isthmus of Tehuantepec" in Oaxaca. I lived in a small city called Matías Romero and traveled to various villages from there. The folk dances in Oaxaca are very diverse and represent each region of the state. The dance of "viejos" (Elder) is a Zapotec custom that dates back to the end of the 19th century.

Photo by @melburford / @prime_collective. This beautiful boy had the best smile! Tuberculosis patient Samang Oeun , 11, lives in Toul Phsang village in Cambodia. He's been receiving medication for three months from health care workers from Operation ASHA. The health care workers go door to door screening for the seven symptoms of TB: nightsweats; low grade fever; weight loss; loss of appetite; persistent cough; chest pain and blood in sputum (mixture of saliva and mucus.) Diagnosing patients early can ensure they receive the care they need to fight the disease. #tuberculosis #operationASHA #onassignment #sonya7ii @rippleeffectimages
