Campaigning in Zimbabwe

Summary

Zimbabwe

We're campaigning for girls at risk of child marriage: This disparity is so pronounced in Zimbabwe, where rural areas tend to have the highest numbers of child marriages due to poverty. Poverty remains a major driving factor for child marriages, as families experiencing acute poverty may find it easier to marry off young girls compared to raise income to purchase food, grain and cattle.
