It feels most respectful that girls worldwide have a day allocated to them, International Day of the Girl Child, a day that exists to honor the girl child and for us all to reflect about the girl child.
I love that so many organizations now work to help girls around the world with many issues such as education, child abuse, anti-trafficking, homelessness, drug abuse, prostitution and many more issues girls face worldwide.
CEF works to help girls stay in school and complete their education, enabling them to grow into women with choices. With the issue of trafficking increasing in Vietnam over the last few year we have added anti-trafficking education. Now sexual use and abuse of young girls via Facebook is growing we are adding education on this aspect to enlighten girls about this sad change that is rapidly increasing.
As girls become women, mothers and grandmothers they are precious members of every community and need and deserve support and help.
