International Day of the Girl

Today is the International Day of the Girl. This year the focus is  (Education).

I learnt that girls in different counties have to get married at a very young age round the age of  8 to 10 is which is very young to be getting married. Girls shouldn’t be getting married at that age instead they should be getting a good education, having a good time with friends and family not getting married.

I feel sorry that the girls have to do something they don’t want to do. If I didn’t go to school I wouldn’t have as many friends as I have, I wouldn’t be as smart as I am and many more all those girls properly will never be able to get a good job and I could go on and on.

What people can do about it is to do fundraises, fun run’s, charity’s and many more just think how much they have to live with, try and think what there going through, it would be hard wouldn’t it so we can help by doing things like that so think for the girls.
