The Change Agent in my Family

"I know why people throw their girls on the streets."


"Its because when they have to get married, their parents have to spend a lot of money on them because the man or the groom asks them for very expensive gifts that the family cannot afford. That is why people throw their girls because they think that they will be useless and only money will be spent on their marriage."

"How can you change it?"

"By not asking for anything when I get married. Its good to buy things by yourselves when you're an adult because you feel more responsible that you can do things by yourself."

Last week we visited a NGO that supports underprivileged children and their mothers and A noticed that there were no boys, only girls there.

When I told him that it is because girls need more help, we had the conversation quoted verbatim above.

Proud mommy today!
