Jenahi, married at 6 years old. Yemen.

Protect girls’ rights. End child marriage.

If we do nothing, 142 million more girls will become child brides over the next 10 years.

The United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) champions the fundamental human rights of men, women and children the world over. The first ever International Day of the Girl Child on 11 October 2012 provides an unique opportunity for the Fund to draw attention to the harmful practice of child marriage by collaborating with photo reporters who have documented the issue and its consequences throughout the world.

The Fund has partnered with photo agency VII on Too Young to Wed, a transmedia campaign that seeks to raise awareness of the issue and support girls who are already married.
