In commemoration of the International Day of the Girl, Save the Children International Nigeria unveiled a music video and audio clip that promotes the power of education in transforming the lives of girls.
This was contained in a statement issued at the weekend by Amanuel Mamo, Director of Advocacy and Campaigns, of SCI.
The statement said the music video, titled, “Shooting Star”, was performed by its Youth Ambassador, Maryam Ahmad; Girl Champion, Purity Oriaifo; and members of Child Rights Advocacy Club.
It said the music is one of the ways girls are speaking out and demanding their rights on the eve of the International Day of the Girl.
The “Shooting Star” video clip is now LIVE on SCI social media channels on https://www.facebook.com/SavetheChildrenNigeria and https://www.youtube.com/c/SavetheChildrenNigeriaNG/ for a free download, distribution, and transmission.
The statement added that the International Day of the Girl 2020 is celebrated with the theme, “My Voice, Our Equal Future”.
“Today, girls in Nigeria and around the world are demanding that States and Governments respect, protect and fulfil their human rights, including to live free from gender-based violence, harmful practices and have access to quality, free, safe, and uninterrupted education.”
