As the society struggles to keep sane and moral values demur, a nongovernmental association NGO, Ladies of Virtue Foundation for Girl Child has decried the loss of values that has put the young ones at risk especially the girl child.
The group wants more attention to be given to the girl child as they are faced with increasing pressures and hazards in form of sexual assault and harassment, rape, gang rape and unwanted pregnancy.
The founder of Ladies of Virtues Foundation For The Girl Child, Mrs Olukemi Olujitan stated in her program, an evening of Intense Worship & Thanksgiving tagged ‘Cries And Shouts in Zion’ that it was imperative to guide the girl child from her early stages even now as the moral fabrics of our society has been torn apart.
Mrs Olujitan who is a mother of four girls added that her outfit has been in the forefront of girl child empowerment for more than six years. “The girl child is a very special person with immense potential even as we the female is an upgrade of the male. We all know that the body and life of the girl do not remain the same again when a boy has sex with a girl. So my outfit, Ladies of Virtue Foundation For The Girl Child aims to empower a hundred girl child this year in sex education and skill acquisition.
“We stand for purity and excellence and urge parents and guardians to pay closer attention to their girls as paedophiles are on the prowl seeking to defile young girls in nursery and primary schools. We have in the past visited schools both in South West and also in Abuja to educate students on excellence and keeping themselves pure especially the girl child,” says Mrs Olujitan.
The NGO, this year wants to further increase the number of schools they embark on to teach students on dangers of immorality and pre-marital sex. At the event held at Maryland in Lagos, different music groups and gospel Artistes like Debreeze, Gloryyeah, Kingsley, Love Symphony, Prevailers Youth Choir and others ministered giving thanks to God for protection through the previous year.
