It took me quite along time to develop a voice,and now that i have it,I am not going to be silent. #ChildMarriage is robbing childhoods,dreams and futures of girls. I urge world leaders to put girls at heart and take action to prevent and respond to child marriage #IStandUpForHer

During crisis, families see child marriage as a way to cope with economic hardship and to protect girls from increased violence. Prior to the war, #ChildMarriage stood at 13% in Syria. In 2022, 71% of communities raised child marriage as a protection concern. #EndChildMarriage
