On Mother’s Day, May 12, imagine for one moment that you were forced to be a wife, and subsequently a mother, at the age of 13. While this idea may seem far-fetched to you, it is the reality for more than 100 million girls worldwide who, within the next decade, will be married before they reach the age of 18.
You can change this.
Please join IWHC in supporting INCRESE, our sister organization located in Minna, a highly conservative area of Nigeria, to prevent early and forced marriage.
Make a donation today in honor of the powerful women in your life.
Nigeria has the highest rates of child marriage in the world. In the North, a staggering 45 percent of girls are married by age 15, and 73 percent are married by age 18. INCRESE is working with girls and their parents to stop this harmful practice. By investing in education programs, you can help turn at-risk girls into powerful young women.
