The association intends to expose the many injustices that young girls are dealing with in their everyday lives. We intend to work closely with the South African authorities to minimize the risks of abuse, rape, trafficking and contracting HIV/AIDS at a young age. We endeavor to harness the talent, strength and passion the girls each have as individuals and groups, thus securing a better life and future for them and their communities.
We give all girls the opportunity to become leaders and channel their energy and compassion to raise awareness and funds for programs to help our most disadvantaged adolescent and young girls have a better quality of life.
We envision a world where girls around the world, have opportunities to be educated, healthy, safe, empowered and positioned to be the next generation of leaders.
It is April 2012, 5 months before our big 5-0 birthday.
I am your future. At the moment, you are 16-and-a half years old, doing grade 11, known as form four then, at Evelyn Baring High School in Swaziland, the year being 1979. You are wondering what you will be, caught between thoughts of pursuing medicine and law. Your pastor’s disapproving views on the latter are not in any way helpful.
