    Very good ot see the case study in the statement submitted to the UN.
    I wonder how many other GS projects could wrote up such a study – I believe that many could – Would like to see GS continuing to put forth our voice from the grassroots cases.

    Theoretically the social protection can be attained but practically, there is a lot of sensitization, creating awareness, education on diverse human rights.

    These may penetrate, anable change of negative attitudes, provoke traditions that no longer advocate equality for all and abuse of the vulnerable in the society.

    Education for boy child remain prioritized in many african cultures while dowrly for girls exagerated in some families.

    How will the mind of a parent be changed to understand marriage is for two adults who agree to live together, to complement and set-up their constitution with regard to thier lives and not allow power to dominate as to who is superior and inferior. Weldone Winifred.
