Empowering survivors on International Women's Day

Hauwa and Ya Kaka, two courageous young women who had been abducted by Boko Haram and forced into early marriage and motherhood, arrived in the United States this week and are beginning their journey towards effecting international change through grassroots advocacy.  Their spirit and determination inspire us, and we are thrilled to be honoring them at our inaugural Too Young to Wed gala event, to be held on March 8th, International Women’s Day, in New York City.

We are pleased to share the invitation to our gala with you, our supporters.  This event will be a celebration of girl empowerment, embodied by these brave young women who have traveled across the world to raise their voices and speak out not only against the tragedy of child marriage, but in support of those who continue to be torn from their families, the thousands of girls still missing, and those who have been lucky enough to return home.  We hope to host our next Tehani Photography Workshop with these girls in Northern Nigeria.

We hope you can join us on International Women's Day as we honor Hauwa and Ya Kaka and take another step forward in our fight to end child marriage.  For those who cannot attend, we encourage you to participate in our silent auction.  

As always, we thank you for your support!
