The global community is today observing International Day of the Girl Child.
The day is to recognize the rights of the girl child and challenges they face around the world.
The International Day of the Girl Child promotes girls’ rights and highlights gender inequalities that remain between girls and boys.
It is a UN observance that is annually held on October 11. One of the major challenges the girl child in Africa, especially, Nigeria, faces is sexual abuse, defilement and right to quality education.
I do my research to see how we can also contribute to takes a look at how the girl child in Nigeria is protected from such abuses.
