As a side note... the video mentionned in that tweet was created by
CEE-HOPE, lead by Betty Abah.
The video is part of a campaign against child marriage
RUN is a short documentary film focusing on child marriage in Nigeria.
Though outlawed, the practice still pervades in many parts of the country
with blighting effects on girls’ development. In this documentary by
CEE-HOPE, a Nigerian NGO working with vulnerable children/girls, a teenager
is married off against her wish; but in the end, her determination wins
over as she returns to school after childbirth.
A series of expert interviews, statistical evidence from leading global
bodies on the prevalence rate as well as local (traditional) colours add
spice and substance to this short and compelling production from CEE-HOPE.
Thank you so much for your work Betty
