Welcoming Too Young to Wed: A Journey to End Child Marriage

We are happy to announce the newest addition to our global network at Keeping Children Safe: Too Young to Wed.

Too Young to Wed’s inspiring journey began in Afghanistan, where founder and Pulitzer Prize-winning photojournalist Stephanie Sinclair embarked on a mission to shed light on the heartbreaking stories of girls and women who set themselves on fire. However, what she discovered in burn ward patients went beyond flames and scars. She unearthed a distressing pattern—most of these patients had been forced into marriage as children. This revelation ignited a spark, leading to the birth of a global movement to end child marriage and empower girls. Since 2014, they have also extended their work to Kenya.

In a world where child marriage continues to curtail the dreams and opportunities of young girls, Too Young to Wed stands as a beacon of hope. Their commitment to empowering girls, ensuring access to education, and safeguarding their well-being strongly resonates with our mission at Keeping Children Safe. 

At the heart of Too Young to Wed’s mission lies child safeguarding. Their programmes to empower young girls and combat child marriage are firmly rooted in the belief that every child deserves a safe and nurturing environment. They are resolute in ensuring that all their activities place the well-being and rights of the children they serve at the forefront. A highlight of this great work is their international traveling photo exhibition, which is at the heart of their advocacy work and shares stories of child brides from around the world.

We extend our warmest welcome to Too Young to Wed! Together, we embark on a shared journey to end child marriage and uphold children’s rights.
