What would you do if your daughter was abducted whilst she is at school, and is sold off for $12?
This is what is happening right now in Nigeria.
The number of girls has in fact risen to 276.
For some people this is just another story about problems in Africa, why cant they get it together, its time for the African Union to act etc etc. I hear you.
This is just not about them though. Women are abducted everyday, off the streets in many different countries.
and all they were doing was trying to get an education.
Why should we keep talking about it? we have to keep the
story alive, this puts pressure on authorities, influences
culture and makes us more aware of how to protect
ourselves and the people we love!
