YOUTHGETHER GLOBAL GIRLS FORUM- DIGITGIRL CHILD
Digital Generation, A Generation for the Girl Child
What really is our Generation for the Girl child
A generation where girls are abused in early age, violated , denied access to education and human rights
A generation where girls are still subjected to ancient practices and forced marriage, family economic resource and abandonment
A generation where girls are not given the opportunity to explore the global opportunity on grounds of protection
Or generation where girls must not be left behind in all issues of development
I was a girl who experiences family interest in growing up. I was as a teenage girl bestowed on responsibility over all my siblings.
I was not allowed to marry far away from my home because I have to be near home to ensure the family values continues and male siblings are positioned to these family values.
I was given opportunity to education at a highest level. I grew up in a family where I was given full opportunity to grow to complete woman. I am what I am today because of these opportunity. We need to give ample opportunity to be what God delights in them. The global warming is moving too fast, we need girls in force careers,STEM career, Technology in great number in order to actualize gender balance and all we intend in our gender drive for Generation Equality.
The COVID19 has given us to consider Digital world. Girls in Developing Countries must be given the opportunity into being part our Digital world. We need Digital World to expose girls to technology, Technology careers, Telehealth and social relationships and peer exchange education.We need expose girls in rural communities to Digit world to connect to understanding of their global opportunity and establish themselves to the sustainable future desired for them in our generation.
Lets DIGITGIRL Child to improve on the social well being , exchange , peer education and connection across Border.
BETH ADAMSON LEGACY FOR GIRL CHILD
The most unanimously adopted Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action, the utmost progressive blueprint ever for advancing the rights of not only women but girls were the first to specifically call out girls’ rights. Since the resolution adopted by the United Nations General Assembly on the Day of the Girl Child, efforts have been globally made to recognize girls’ rights and the unique challenges girls face around the world. The International Day of the Girl Child focuses attention on the need to address these challenges and to promote girls’ empowerment and the fulfillment of their human rights.
With global adjustments to the New Normal on COVID-19 Recovery, concerns on the girl child have remained inclusive and the future of our Generation on the Girl Child is tagged most priority on the concern in keeping pace with the realities girls face today.
With the launching of Generation Equality Forum on a five-year commitments for bolder solutions to gender inequality in the second year of the COVID-19 pandemic accelerating digital platforms for learning, earning and connecting, greater percentage of the population of the girl child are not aware of the digital education or knowledgeable about the internet access. The gender gap for global internet users grew from 11 per cent in 2013 to 17 per cent in 2019. In the world’s least developed countries, it hovers around 43 per cent.
Girls are less likely than boys to use digital device and be able to gain access to digital related jobs denying them of the gender digital divide and knowledge about global connectivity.
YOUTHGETHER Global is joining the global community on October 9 and October 11 to discuss on the theme “Our Girls, Our Generation and Our Goals in Post COVID19 Recovery to highlight the need for digital education and the future of the girl child especially in developing countries. The discussion will impinge on education, health, overall well-being on the girl child and flag a YOUTHGETEHR Global campaign on DIGITGIRL Child among girls and YOUTHGETHER Global members to bring technology and ICT education to every girl as well as inaugurate 4 new chapters of YOUTHGETHER Global.
