Sometimes hashtag # campaigns really annoy me. I haven't decided where I stand with #BringBackOurGirls yet. These campaigns, a.k.a. Kony's Child Soldier campaign, have a funny way of blowing up in our faces. You debate on one hand if its done responsibly or if its just a sensationlistic 15 minute thing that is in the now. But when you find articles, like the one written by Nicolas Kristof called What's so Scary about Smart Girls?, it makes you happy the hashtag campaign happened.
Kristof makes us think about what else we can do. Bringing opportunities to all springs forth exponential economic growth and furthers stability. Perhaps its time we take a moment to think about how we can engage our own civic duty.
Check out our projects in social development, like Single Mother's Empowerment, to help bring opportunities to all.
