60secs STANDUP #frownchallenge EVERY WEDNESDAY 12PM #endcuttinggirls #endVAC

Reminder for today 12pm weekly global event.  
Don't forget this.
It would be observed nationwide again today, some of our followers outside the country are joining as well.


The Minister for Gender, Children and Social Protection, Otiko Afisa Djaba, launched a strategy mapping how the government will address child marriage between 2017 and 2026.Ghana is in a unique position to make significant progress on child marriage. With 21% of girls married before 18, it has one of the lowest child marriage rates in West and Central Africa. The practice could reduce by 50% by 2050, according to UNICEF.However, some regions are disproportionately affected by child marriage – 34% of girls in northern Ghana are married before 18. Population growth remains a challenge too. While child marriage rates drop, the number of girls married could still increase as the population grows.Ghana’s strategy comes at a key moment to accelerate the country’s efforts to end child marriage and improve the lives of tens of thousands of girls.
The development of a coordinated response to child marriage in Ghana has been underway for som…

5 Things You Should Never Say to a Child

If you have a child, are responsible for a child, or have children around you in any way and at any time, you must erase these words from your vocabulary and refrain from saying them to a child. This is because a child’s mind and perception of the world is very fragile in their formative years, so you have to be careful not to impact them negatively with your words. 1.“Practice Makes Perfect”
This popular phrase is what most children have grown up hearing and most parents erroneously believe that this phrase encourages a child to work harder and attain great things. However, most of the time, this is not so. This adage sends a message that if a child doesn’t win or excel, it means the child didn’t work hard enough. This weakens the child’s confidence as he/she grows up believing every failure is caused by his/her incompetence or inability to put in enough effort. It’s better to say instead that ‘practice makes better’ rather than ‘practice makes perfect’.
2.“You’re Okay”
This is anoth…

Tobacco kills 7 million a year, wreaks environmental havoc, says WHO

Smoking and other tobacco use kills more than seven million people each year, the World Health Organization said Tuesday, also warning of the dire environmental impact of tobacco production, distribution and waste.The UN agency said tougher measures were needed to rein in tobacco use, urging countries to ban smoking in the workplace and indoor public spaces, outlaw marketing of tobacco products and hike cigarette prices.“Tobacco threatens us all,” WHO chief Margaret Chan said in a statement. “Tobacco exacerbates poverty, reduces economic productivity, contributes to poor household food choices, and pollutes indoor air,” she said.In a report released ahead of World No Tobacco Day on Wednesday, WHO warned that the annual death toll of seven million people had jumped from four million at the turn of the century, making tobacco the world’s single biggest cause of preventable death.And the death toll is expected to keep rising, with WHO bracing for more than one billion deaths this century…

Topic: *Between God And Neighbours* *TEXT*: _MARK 12:28-37_

*Tue, 30 May, 2017**Key Verse*: _"And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment" (Mark 12:30)._Two aspects of Jesus’ personality are here introduced: His humanity and deity. He is both human and divine. In His incarnation, Jesus came to this world in human form in the lineage of David. That is why He is often referred to as the Son of David. However, because He is God, David himself referred to Him as Lord. Jesus, while answering the question of the scribes on which is the greatest commandment, said the most important commandment is to love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your mind and with all your strength. We, as believers are commanded to love Jesus Christ our Lord with all our heart, soul, mind and strength. He deserves our love and reverence. We show our love to Him by obeying Him and giving our all, including our lives, to Him unc…

Open Heavens 30 May 2017: Tuesday daily devotional by Pastor E. A. Adeboye – The Ultimate Destination

Memorise: Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: – Matthew 7:13
Read: Matthew 7:13-14 (KJV)
13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:
14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
Bible in One Year: Acts 18-19, Jeremiah 38:14-23 , Hymn: Sing hymn 11
God wants to change your life, but beyond this, He wants to change your final destination. Over the ages, many people have had to move from one location to another within the same country. Others have had to relocate to other countries for one reason or the other. However, at the end of the day, irrespective of where we live, we shall all arrive at a final destination. That destination is eternal and cannot be changed after we die. There are two eternal destinat…

They thought they knew the Father, but when Jesus made this statement, they couldn’t understand that statement that God is His Father, how could He relate Himself to God.
There has been a promise in the last book in the Old Testament that the Sun of Righteousness shall come and shine. This refer to the Lord Jesus Christ, and the Jews should have been expecting that Sun to shine unto them. But they shut themselves out of the Sun that came and shinning, because they remain in the darkness of religion and traditions. Jesus Christ brought healing, deliverance, miracles and works that no one had ever done, and that Jesus Christ did so much that all the Old Testament prophets did in their times.
Their action, attitude and seeming ignorance was inexcusable, because they should have recognised …

HIV Counseling and Testing is the service rendered to an individual in order for him/her to know his HIV status, which could be either positive or negative and is usually confidential.

Top 8 Do's and Don't For A Happy, Successful Marriage

1. Don’t allow anyone to convince you that happy marriages don’t exist.You cannot create a successful, happy marriage, if you don’t believe such a thing exists.A happy marriage is not generational and you don’t need to be wealthy to have one of your own.All you need to do is believe you have what it takes to create one…and put in the effort daily to make it happen.2. Don’t listen to experts (unless they happen to also be happily married).When people are giving you advice on your marriage, there must be a litmus test: are they happily married themselves?This is not an area in which you want to take advice from those who are theorising about it.Find people who are actually living it and those are the only ones from which you should glean advice on what to do (the others, you can look for advice on what not to do).3. Do listen to those happily married.Surround yourselves with couples who have been happily married 25 years or more. Those couples have weathered every possible storm and eme…

Campaign to End Violence Against Children in Nigeria

#endVAC Violence against children is a pervasive problem, very close to home, in Nigeria, with six out of every ten children in the country suffering one or more forms of physical, sexual or emotional violence before they reach 18. More than 70 per cent experience this violence repeatedly. One out of two suffer physical violence, such as punching, kicking, whipping, burning, choking, trying to drown, threatening or hitting with a weapon; one in four girls and one in ten boys have experienced sexual violence; one in five boys and one in six girls suffer emotional violence. Mostly, the perpetrators are someone the child knows and the violence often takes place where the child should be safe – in their homes, in a neighbour’s home, at school, and coming to and from school. The vast majority of children never speak out, silenced by fear, shame, stigma and a lack of knowledge of where to seek help. Fewer than five per cent of children who are victims of violence ever get the help that they…

OVER 200 million girls and women alive today living in 30 countries have undergone FGM/C
Female genital mutilation/cutting (FGM/C) refers to “all procedures involving partial or total removal of the female external genitalia or other injury to the female genital organs for non-medical reasons.”[1] FGM/C is a violation of girls’ and women’s human rights.
