LEARN6 - women's and children's rights

I have read many articles of the UN gender equality newsfeed page. And I've finally decided on the article "American girls raise awareness and money to fight child marriage in four countries". Thousands of American girls between the ages of 13 and 18 years fighting against the marriage of children. These girls help the UN Foundation's Girl Up campaign in four countries, Ethiopia, Liberia, Malawi, and Guatemala.
Girl Up campaign

I think it's very important that children have a childhood. Because you will grow up soon enough.

After further investigations, I have found a more foundation. The "Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung". This foundation is against the marriage of children in Senegal. For this purpose, the Foundation has published a comic "Afrique Citoyenne - Mariages Precoces". This comic is trying to persuade people, to let the girl go to school and make the conclusion. The foundation gives away comics at schools, youth- and women's- and human right organization. Girls and women in Senegal, as in other parts of Africa, are the main victims of underdevelopment.

Such a comic should be in Africa and especially in the countries in which the marriage of children is particularly pronounced to be distributed. It shows all the problems with which the girls must contend with an early marriage.
I think it is especially good a serious issue to be connected with a playful aspect. Both children and adults can learn from this. Because children are our future.

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.

Where I will be in ten years.

Ten years from now I will be in a political job assisting with people in the midlands of South Carolina particularly the rural working class and farmers. As the class of people that feed the nation I find that it is imperative that we assist with making sure they produce as much food as possible. I would like to support local scientists as well that are leading in research on how to produce food more efficiently. I will also be participating in missions to foreign countries to help people with…See More

India Water home

The secret was living on the water via boats common in many developing countries like Myanmar. This is a real Indian boat home made of wood and this provides a shelter for many peoples around the world.
