This is Why

This is an 11 year old Yemeni girl speaking out about arranged child marriages. While I am moved by her understanding and insight of the world she lives is at such a young age, it is for this very reason that girls are denied education in many underdeveloped countries. The  less educated one is, the easier it is for fundamentalist and radicals to successfully push their agenda. Her dreams of being educated and pursuing goals are resonated around the world. This is why I believe in education. It is an economic and moral imperative that all children have the opportunity to explore their capacity for greatness.
