Too Young To Wed’s unique photography workshops bring former child brides and girls at-risk of child marriage together to overcome their trauma and learn visual storytelling skills that will help them communicate their own stories, giving them a voice on the world stage.
Every 2 seconds, a girl is married against her will. There are more than 700 million women today who were married before the age of 18, including 233 million before they were 15. Child brides are more likely to leave school early and experience poor health, sexual & physical violence, and injury & death from pregnancy. In Kenya, 23% of girls marry before age 18. The number of girls married will double by 2050, if nothing is done.
