I don’t have to tell anyone reading this post that Public Health work can be exhausting, and occasionally soul-crushing: moving mountains with limited resources is hard. 

If the weight of your own public health cause feels heavy right now, I offer you this story of Memory Banda, and the work accomplished by Malawi’s Girl’s Empowerment Network (GENET) and the Public Health Institute’s own Let Girls Lead.

May their tremendous successes and their continued vigor towards achieving rights for girls everywhere be an inspiration to all of us in our own paths.
