Education is a right, not a privilege

If you know me, you know that I’ve always had a love for learning. As a toddler, I would devour story books. In school, I got a high from grasping new concepts. As an adult, I keep going back for more. I now even ghostwrite for educators! 

Over the years, I’ve become more aware that the education I received is not the norm. There are countless girls and young women who look like me yet have been deprived of what I view as a basic need. That’s not fair. Education should be a right, not a privilege. 

When you educate a girl, you’re also educating her children, her children’s children...you get what I mean. This stuff has generational impact! 

Which brings me to One Girl. This organisation seeks to empower young women In Sierra Leone and Uganda through access to education. For these girls, education changes everything. I’ve been watching the work One Girl is doing from afar from a while now. 

This year, even with everything that‘s happened both in my life and the world at large, I’m grateful. Now more than ever. I choose to step in and no longer be a spectator. 

Before I finish my third decade of this life I’ve been gifted with, I want to give a gift of my own. The gift of education. 

Will you help me make this happen?
