Greetings and thank you very much for your generous gift to our project helping child brides and their families. One of the reason for the child bride phenomenon is the difficulty of poor families in raising their children especially girls and the tendency is to give them away or marry them in order to ease their burden in raising them. In this case our goal is to improve the situation of poor farming families in order to increase their income and stability. With improved incomes they will be able to send their girls to school and hence prevent the occurence of child brides. On of our approach is to introduce high-valued crops to small farming families so that they realize improved incomes and well-being. We are starting to do this village by village and we think that this is a good strategy. Hoping for you continuing help. Thank you very much.
