#BringBackOurGirls "This is a devastating situation no woman should be in! It brakes my heart to live in such a heartless world! Praying for the 234 abducted schoolgirls". - Pepa Maria.

"Hace dos semanas esta noticia me partió el corazón, repugnante vivir en un mundo tan despiadado. Más de 234 niñas fueron secuestradas de un internado al norte de Nigeria por un grupo terrorista para ser usadas como reclusas y esclavas sexuales. El temor es que muchos de ellas permanecen en cautiverio por más de una década, si no son ejecutadas por estos despiadados grupos. #NoIgnoresElMundo pudiste haber sido tu o tu hija". -Pepa María.

HELP------- 
Nearly 300 Nigerian high school girls still remain missing after they were brutally kidnapped by extremists last month. Many reports indicate these young women were sold to be brides for as little as $12.
Concern has swelled on social media around the world, and the phrase #BringBackOurGirls, the hashtag for the campaign to rescue the girls, has been tweeted over a million times. The outrage at the girls’ kidnapping and violence of human trafficking has spurred regular people to find more information on how to help, hoping to prevent tragedies like this in the future.

Take to social media
“The campaign has helped to galvanize action within the country and has raised tremendous international media attention,” the Human Rights Watch said in an email to ABC News. The hashtag #BringBackOurGirls has “fast became the symbol of the people’s anger and frustration for the perceived ineffectual handling of the situation by the government.” UNICEF is encouraging people to continue using the hashtag in order to gain more media and government attention on the present kidnapping, and then to get involved in their End Trafficking project to help put a stop to human trafficking.

Change.org’s petition asks for President Goodluck Jonathan to ensure the girls’ safe return and “to ensure all schools are safe places to learn, protected from attack.”
There’s also a Whitehouse.gov petition that specifically asks for the U.S. to commit resources to help bring these girls home safely. Neither has all of the signatures they need yet so it’s another great way to help make a change.
Both are great ways to increase pressure on the Nigerian government and international communities to act swiftly in the region.
