Welcome to Truly Our Sisters

A girl child in developing and under developed world is being denied an opportunity for education and personal development. This is basically due to the social-economic and political environment they find themselves in. A girl child is a dependable resource and vehicle for change.  She needs empowerment in order to unlock the continent’s potential.

The education of girls and women is important not only as a matter of respecting a basic human right for half the population but as a powerful force for economic development and achieving social goals such as enhanced health, nutrition and civic involvement. Edward B. Fiske

 


Truly Our Sisters is an online campaign and a platform for telling and sharing stories of children, especially vulnerable girl children, who are faced by serious challenges – poverty, war, violence, trafficking, displacement, hunger, etc. that deny them access to education
