Youth in Developing Countries Speak Out Series

Females in Society

Our first book from the Youth in Developing Countries Speak Out Series is available!

A genuine account from the youth on roles of females in their society from a grass-roots level.” – Sherry M. Knowles

The book is a compendium of essays written by 60 youth leaders aged 17-26 from 30 developing countries about the status of females in their countries. The youth discuss a wide range of topics from discrimination, child marriages, unwed pregnancies, abuse, government programs, education and religion, and provide suggestions for advancement. The candid perspectives span from positive reports to problematic situations. This book provides extraordinary accounts directly from the youth themselves about the daily conditions they live in.

This book is the first in a series to be published by The Kectil Program as a platform for youth in developing countries to speak directly to the world about their issues. Our first book provides an unprecedented forum for youth in developing countries to give first-hand accounts. These rising youth leaders want their observations and suggestions heard. These essays are must-reads for anyone who wants to take the pulse of the next generation in the fastest growing areas of the world, and those who want to understand the physical and psychological challenges females face in less fortunate countries.

We invite you to listen as the rising youth leaders in developing countries speak out! We urge you to buy this book and encourage your family, friends, colleagues and associates to buy it also.

The book is  on iBooks, Amazon Kindle, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, Baker & Taylor, Copia, Gardners, eSentral, Scribd, Goodreads, Ciando, Vearsa.
