Summary: Shaping the Future includes a global overview of girl child issues stemming from gender discrimination and explores the root causes of this disparity. Further, the writers from various streams of work around the world lay a foundation for shaping the value of the girl child. The strategies discussed help the girl child surmount the barriers that prevent her from reaching her full, God-given potential and also result in her physical, emotional, and spiritual healing. A rosebud has been used to symbolize the life of the girl child. Rosebuds can be broken and trampled or allowed to bloom into beautiful roses. The challenge for us is to learn how we can help girls to bloom in spite of the obstacles, empowering them to embrace their full, God-given potential.
