Lackson Creto
01:05:45
Thank you so much Mary. Like others have observed in the previous comments, the situation of child marriage in terms of complexity looks so similar across Africa. I am from Malawi and the situation is not different. Where the work of ending child marriage campaign hangs is on "what next after getting the girls back from marriages." We have had lots of girls getting back to marriages after they were already rescued from the same.

Thanks, Bill for outlining the breadth of research, and especially highlighting the relationship between CP and child activism. Very interesting to be always prepared for the resistance to social child led by children, and to anticipate it as normal. And the necessary process of constructive exchange between generations.

Really important point, Bill, that we must be prepared for resistance to social change (whether the activism is led by children or adults), so building in tools and support to support the child activists through these challenges is really key.
