Stop the Sale of Badjao Girls
 
Roots of Health empowers women and girls in the Philippines to secure their right to health and freedom from violence. Young girls from the Badjao (sea gypsys) community in Palawan are being sold into marriage by their parents to older men. We want to work with this community so we can help parents see the dangers of child marriage, help empower girls and keep them in school, and counsel girls already sold into marriage on birth spacing so they can control their fertility. project reportread updates from the field
