What were you doing yesterday afternoon?

December 14, 2017

Driving through the community yesterday, I came across two young girls on the road.  I waved and they smiled and waved back.  I stopped, took a photo and gave them each a mango.  Their smiles were priceless, but didn’t last long.  Three teenage boys appeared; the little girls’ faces darkened and they stepped back off the road.  I tried to imagine why they reacted in fear when they saw the boys.  Then I remembered reading recently that one in three girls, in Zimbabwe, are abused before they are twelve years old. 

 

My heart sank as I pondered the plight of those two precious, but vulnerable little girls – just two of many in the rural communities.  Troubled thoughts ran through my mind and I felt helpless. 

 

From a young age, girls in our rural communities, traditionally collect wood or water for their households when they get back from school.  This often involves walking several miles – and they may have already walked several miles to and from school.

 

 

 

You can help empower young girls in our community by donating to help us build a counselling room for abused children at the community center or by spending time volunteering on Morning Star ranch.
