    Thanks for the post Chally. I dont think people realize how serious this problem is. Its very sad, and more should be done to prevent it. Girls at the age of 15 should be having sleepovers and going to school, not getting married and giving birth!

    Thanks for signal boosting this one, Chally – it’s a very worthwhile cause. I plan to keep an eye out for future programs initiated by The Elders organisation.

    What a wonderful campaign! The Elders’ initiatives that I’ve heard of seem really well thought out. As they say at Shakesville, fantastic teaspooning, the lot of ‘em!

    Edit: Hmm, not sure about that first apostrophe.
