Hadjo's Dreams

In Niger, 61% of adolescents (15–19 yrs) are married and almost a third of women currently 20–24 yrs were married before the age of 15. The high prevalence of child marriage is directly linked to Niger’s high rates of adolescent pregnancy. 40.4% of adolescents (15–19) have already given birth and 25% of maternal deaths are among adolescents. This short film can be used as a tool for reflection and sparking discussion on issues related to child and early marriage.
