Malaika (a poem)

When you educate a girl, you save the nation

When you teach girls to lead, they become our salvation

Digging wells isn’t just about digging holes

When a community is nourished, you’ve nourished its soul

Malaika Malaika, Swahili for angel

YOU are Malaika, helping girls succeed from every angle

Creating change agents for tomorrow

By focusing on the good, not the sorrow

If each girl can wake up with a possible new beginning

She’s waking up every day with the chance of winning

Building community, one girl at a time

And day after day, we’re seeing the signs

That an investment in girls is some thing never wasted

Because day by day, new trailways are created

All our girls need is hope and a chance

Then we can get out of their way and watch them advance!
