No-one can any longer afford to sit back and believe someone is doing something about it. Girls’ business is now everyone’s concern. This is more true in Malawi where over 50% of the population are children with about half of them being girls. In a country where about 49% of girls marry by age of 18 and maternal mortality is among the highest in the world, surely you cannot continue to think somehow something will change the situation. You must act NOW.
