[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Is affirmative action needed for this now endangered species?
Something really good happened when the world, in Beijing, decided to affirm the girl child and accelerate her upward trajectory. The veracity of this decision was confirmed by the Nairobi Forward Looking Strategies, and with good reason. For centuries, women had been marginalized, the world over; sadly, they continue to be. The struggle for female emancipation is far from over.
That notwithstanding, the world must now open their eyes to the undesired consequence of the preoccupation with women: the putting out of the boy child’s candle to light that of the girl child.
At Siri, we are passionate about gender equality. All children (and adults too), irrespective of gender, being allowed a chance to grow and glow. Equal opportunities to find their passion and grow their skill-set even in skills that are not traditionally associated with their gender. To Unlock That Potential!
This is one of the reasons why we have courses such as our new course “Camp Certitude” which allows children to find their identity, grow in self love and learn how to accept and cope with tough emotions.
Here’s a link to Camp Certitude if you are interested in learning more about it.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image source=”external_link” custom_src=”https://kids.thesirionlinecampus.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/08/Camp-Certitude-1-870×440.png”][vc_btn title=”See Camp Certitude For Kids” color=”blue” link=”url:https%3A%2F%2Fkids.thesirionlinecampus.com%2Fcourses-2%2Fcamp-certitude|target:_blank”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_custom_heading text=”Yin and Yang- both genders can flourish”][vc_column_text]Granted, there is still a lot of work to be done for the girl child, particularly in the rural areas of our motherland. We only hope to see a scenario where both genders are allowed to thrive! Gender equality will help us avoid a seesaw effect which could see women re-marginalised years from now, in a bid to strengthen the boy.
Is it not possible to have both candles glowing?
The Yin and Yang concept.

Yin and Yang complement each other, create each other, support each other, regulate each other and transform each other.
That’s one of my inspiring takeaways from this video.
