NOW SHE KNOWS
Written by~ Bikom Cecilia, Girl Advocate
It's such a pity, she didn't know the act was wrong
It didn't occur to her that such an act would have consequences
Ignorant of the trauma it would result in
Internal bleeding, emotional trauma, Crisco Vaginal Fistula, all these they knew nothing about
Who is she?
A girl of age 13-19 being given off for marriage
Girls with potentials, skills, intellectual ability; but didn't recognize
Girls who had the thrive for success but couldn't show it
All because of the so-called "EARLY CHILD MARRIAGE"
But guess what?
It's high time I stood up, you stood up and change her mindset about the former (early child marriage)
There are other valuables she can give to society, NOT THIS
Now that she has the RIGHT KNOWLEDGE
Thereby, making appropriate advocacy actions in ending it.
