Addressing Child Marriage in Zambia

Forty-two percent of Zambian girls are married before they turn 18, robbing them of their education, health, and future.

A new short documentary by Girls Not Brides highlights how the Population Council is partnering with communities to empower adolescent girls.

These partnerships are critical to addressing the challenge of child marriage, which holds back girls, their communities, and their countries.

“All of us together as a collective entity will solve this problem,” explains Professor Luo, a cabinet minister in the Zambian government.
