‘I applaud what you are doing, and I agree with your perspective on African children…It is probably going to be hard to change such ensconced mentalities just like in my home country of India, it’s very hard to change belief patterns because they are embedded in culture and also in religion. BUT – someone has to try. Someone will make progress. It is time. And at the very least, those after us can build on our current work to finally achieve breakthrough. So, our efforts are never wasted – not even a bit.’ #EMEAChildSafetySummit2017.
