World Vision International

This report draws on the experience and observations of World Vision field staff working in a variety of countries and cultural contexts where girls are commonly married before they’re fully physically or emotionally grown. The insights of these local and international humanitarian workers are here combined with the stories of individuals affected by the practise of early marriage. In pairing these viewpoints with findings from existing research, the hope is to provide insight into the complexities surrounding child marriage and the need for integrated approaches to address its causes and lay an economic, educational and cultural foundation that will allow communities to embrace other options for their girl children.
