International Day of the Girl Child

Thursday 11 October 2012 is the first UN International Day of the Girl Child.... and it raises awareness of issues around the world - even in the so called 'developed West' ... take a look a http://dayofthegirl.org/girls-issues/ - and then ask yourself 'What about the developing nations?'

Medicine on the Move is committed to a long term support partnership for the training of rural girls in West Africa as pilot/engineer/health educators in order to meet the aims and objectives in rural outreach for expansion to more locations and in more ways in the coming years. Plan International has a programme called 'Because I am a Girl' and Dr Wilfred Owen came by to chat with the girls sporting one of their T Shirts.... A few moments of encouragement go a long way as we seek the sustainable solution to reaching the isolated communities in Ghana and West Africa.

We strongly believe that empowering the Girl Child is empowering the community - and we look forward to the Graduation of the young women you see here who are already sharing health education and its associated empowerment on a regular basis as part of their syllabus and curriculum.
