Chief Kachindamoto has broken up 850 child marriages in three years, and banned the sexual initiations of young girls.

After receiving death threats for eliminating the practice of child marriages, she said, “I don’t care, I don’t mind. I’ve said whatever, we can talk, but these girls will go back to school.”
