What is ‘Girls, Not Brides’ about?
It’s a global coalition against child marriage. I initially thought child marriage was a problem just in India – i was shocked to discover it’s prevalent even in Africa! We are unlikely to achieve six out of the eight Millennium Development Goals if we don’t deal with this huge problem. If we do nothing, at the present rate, 10 million girl children will become forced brides in just one year – that’s 100 million in the next decade.
