WE TEND TO THINK OF WEDDINGS AS HAPPY OCCASIONS, but this is not always the case. According to UNICEF, 15 million underage girls will be married this year and if nothing is done, the number of girls married as children will reach 1 billion by 2030. To try and put an end to child marriage, UNICEF and UNFPA launched on Tuesday -International Women’s Day – their Global Programme to Accelerate Action to End Child Marriage, a multi-country initiative which will involve families, communities, governments and young people. Along with the campaign, UNICEF shared this video on their Facebook page to raise awareness. It reached 4 million views in less than 24 hours.
