2000 – 2015 SYMPOSIUM ARCHIVES
|2014 Annual Symposium
Many young indigent girls transitioning from adolescence to adulthood are vulnerable to early marriage with its propensity to violence against them often because of societal prescriptions and sometimes because of the circumstances of their birth.
After such marriages, many young women find that it is difficult to attend school while at the same time bearing children. They marry young in the hopes that their spouse will pay the mandatory school fees and provide for their basic subsistence needs. These young girls endure untold hardships, emotional trauma, humiliation, and even death to lift themselves out of poverty through education to become economically independent.

International Peace Day Message:
Give the Youths a Chance and Watch them Grow. Peace is helping indigent youths develop their potentials and break their poverty cycle. Denying indigent youths from developing countries access to technology heightens their level of poveting on a keg of gun powder.
