Reigning Miss World Africa, Quiin Abenakyo, led the Girl Get Equal campaign ambassadors to appeal to the Parliament of Uganda to criminalize child marriages.
The campaign ambassadors, who seek to foster rights and equal treatment of the girl child, also asked the Parliament to pass the Sexual Offense Bill.
They furthermore requested that parliament considers an affirmative action for child mothers to access free secondary education.
Quiin Abenakyo and Girls Get Equal ambassadors tendered in their plea during the launch of the campaign at Hotel African where the Speaker of Parliament Hon. Rebecca Kadaga was invited as the guest of honor.
