    Love the process of how this was written. Do you know what the plan is to push this out beyond "the choir" of people who are already advocates for girls' rights? How is this declaration being distributed to community leaders, officials, etc, or is this more of an awareness tool?

    This is fantastic! I'm a avid supporter of women and girls taking control of their lives. It's so important that they have their voices heard—especially in impoverish community.

    Just wrote about how I'm trying to spread my voice in the repair world:

    It's really hard to do and I sometimes struggle—but it's encouraging to hear about projects like this one.
