    Thank you for your answers. As women and mothers we really have to push towards change. Social media is a very powerful tool to get our message across. Engaing in community affairs and having local geoups who speak on behalf of the community is important to get the message across to leaders.

    I think they persist because government authorities refuse to take action. Imagine a 7 year old girl being sent far away from home to be a househelp. Many of them end up not getting education even if its free as her madam would prefer she stays at home to do house chores 24/7. Its so sad.

    I think the challenges are known. Maybe we should be asking why do thy persist?
