Ending Early Child Marriage

Ending Child Marriage is a call to Stop Child Early or Forced Marriage that often hampers the education of girls and boxes them into a cycle of poverty. In Nigeria, 43% of girls are married off before their 18th birthday. 17% are married before they turn 15. 47% of Nigeria’s girls are mothers before they reach 20. These are high numbers that should be greatly reduced to ensure that fewer to no girls are married off or nursing mothers when they should be in school instead. TGAP is helping us to use our creative digital skills to tell short stories, write poems, take compelling photographs, produce a short film, and showcase them in this website to speak out against child marriage.
