Pregnant at 13: Child Marriage in Tanzania

Pregnant at 13: Child Marriage in Tanzania

On International Day of the Girl Child we would like to highlight the human rights abuse that is Child Marriage. FORWARD has been working on the issue of child marriage for the past 15 years and today would like to share with you this video featuring the young women we support along with our partners in Tanzania, Children’s Dignity Forum.

Learn more information on the region where we work in Tanzania and the situation of child brides and child mothers by reading our report ‘Voices of Child Brides and Child Mothers in Tanzania: A PEER Report on Child Marriage‘.

These young women have all endured child marriage or forced teenage pregnancy. Here they tell their own stories in their own words. If you are interested in supporting these young women and their children or for more information please contact us: [email protected]
