Recently, the world population hit 7 billion. It’s pretty humbling to try to wrap one’s mind around being one amongst so many. It’s even more humbling when you break it down into what that means to each person.
I was born in Canada. This itself was a huge jackpot in the world’s lottery. Being a female has the potential of being a handicap in this world but for me it was nothing but a life of potential and opportunity. This is not the case for the majority of girls born in the world.
There are a number of organizations that focus on raising awareness about what happens when you invest in girls. Recently I discovered a new “girl” video that really touched me. The other is “Girl Effect” which is really powerful. For those that haven’t seen them, I thought this would be a way to showcase and share them. I’d love to know what you think.
