Choose Your Future: Child Marriage in Nepal

Choose Your Future: Child Marriage in Nepal



Half of all girls in Nepal are married before the age of 18, an illegal but prevalent practice which denies them access to education and puts them at risk of complications in childbirth from having children too young.

A programme called ‘Choose Your Future’ supported by UNFPA is uniting young girls in the campaign against child marriage and giving them a voice to fight for their rights.

These are the stories of Bijay, Shanti, Ramesh and Usha.
