Stat_slide_SM1

The United Nations declared October 11 as the International Day of the Girl Child in 2012, to recognize girls’ rights and the unique challenges girls face around the world.

How far do you have to travel to school?

Is it a short walk, do you travel by bus or train, or are you taken by car?

Read the story of Sylvia from Tanzania and her journey to school each day on the BBC website http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-africa-23239800

Pray for Sylvia and girls like her around the world, that God will keep them safe as they journey to school each day.
