Gender-Based Violence

More than 33,000 girls are married as children and according to UNFPA reports, an estimated 140 million girls will become child brides between 2011 and 2020.

Girls who marry before age 18 suffer horrendous violation of their human rights such as denial of an education, at risk of complications related to premature childbearing, unsafe abortions, traumatic fistula and more vulnerable to intimate partner violence.

Gender-based violence undermines the health, dignity, security and autonomy of its victims, yet it remains shrouded in a culture of silence.
