Our first cruise to Papua New Guinea, and we’ll be back
Was it a greener field, Sam Basil, or something less pleasant?

A brief note on educating girls….

Girls in PNG school (ANU Crawford School)TANYA ZERIGA-ALONE | EmNauPNG Blog

PORT MORESBY - When you educate a girl, you educate a nation.

When you give opportunities to a girl to evolve to something higher than her current state, she inevitably raises everyone around her to that new standard.

Her man or any potential male out there wanting her attention has to raise their standard to meet hers.

The same for other women in her life, be it girlfriends, aunties, mothers.

And when she has her own family she raises them up to the standard she has been exposed to.

She has become a role model.

Change happens just like that – one female at a time and when more women get an education, it totally lifts up our game.

If you have a daughter, niece, granddaughter – champion her education and personal development.

Your investment will not be wasted.

Small minded is what small minded does.

Educated men or women may all behave like scum.

I'm sure we've all seen this enough times to be wiser.

Same with boys Tanya.

A boy with a well-rounded education who respects women will take his friends and family along with him.
