October 11: International Day of the Girl Child

Educate me and I will educate a nation

Give me a chance; I will change the fate of my community

Give me an option; I will enrapture peace back in your mind and heart

Give me a pen and a book; I will change the course of the nation

I am a woman,

The mother of Compassion and Mercy,

The mother of Mankind!

Anosha Zereh
