Latest comments from YATPUGNET BURKINA

It is a good idea; it is good and relevant; I really congratulate the Girls Out Loud initiative from PLAN Burkina. It is a good initiative that allows young people to better express themselves with their peers and share experiences that are part of their development. If this platform did not exist, we would have to create it. I made many friends thanks to this platform. In addition, I had to participate in trainings, which allows me to inform myself and be useful to society. And this idea of posting awareness messages is part of the work done by this Girls Out Loud platform. I hope that the platform will continue to work to help girls awaken their female leadership and foster a female youth committed to a better world.
