Girl Education: How Important?

#Reminiscing. #VillageHeadMistress

And, so this morning, I visited one of our students who has been away from school for some 2weeks! Infact, she hasn't resume the new term with us. On getting to her house. I met her mum at the front door, smiling at me while I embarked from an 'okada' (motorcycle). But, no I wouldn't smile. I wasn't ready to do that, not even on a Monday morning when your daughter is absent from school, again?. *I kept a straight face* "Where is our 'girl'?' I inquired, she smiled further, pointing at her direction... Wow! Our little friend has been pre-occupied with nursing a neigbhour's baby? No way! "This is not acceptable, mama. Right now, this girl is going back to school with me..and, for no reason should she be away from school, henceforth". I said this, like a village headmistress would do. Lol. Surprisingly, in a jiffy...mama took our friend inside, got her dressed up and with her bag on her shoulder...we left for school. #CaseClose.


#Unfortunately, some parents still don't understand the importance of girl child education.
Sincerely,

Last three years, we had a similar case where one of our girls was also 'abandoned' in the church for spiritual healing. She had her legs swollen as a result of the illness. It was a mild fracture, mama assured us. Everything would be fine. Haaa! Fracture? But this is not an hospital. Swiftly, with friends help, we got them moved to a hospital where it was diagnosed that our little friend had kidney problem. She spent more than 4months in the hospital! Today she is alive and in JSS 1.

Sadly, when people resolve to goin…
