Challenge

Early marriage is prevalent in poor, remote villages and this is very disadvantageous to the girl who is still not physically and emotionally mature for such situation. The need to mount educational campaign and economic support to those not yet in this situation is important. The need also to support girls already in this situation is equally important. Families and communities are at a gross disadvantage if this situation happen and the need to prevent and mitigate is important.

Solution

An effective education campaign will open the eyes of those who contemplates to marry at a very early age and ensure that they still live meaningful lives while staying single. A girl at an early marriage situation is grossly disadvantaged and social and economic advancement is difficult. However those in this type of situation already needs to be assisted by the provision of small livelihoods for example, and medical support.

Long-Term Impact

Girls marrying early are at a severe disadvantage because of their emotional and biological conditions. They are also not prepared economically and the need for support is acute in order to assuage and improve their situation and in so doing improve also the overall situation of their communities.
