Getting Child Brides Back to School in Malawi

A number of charities are working with the government, local communities and village chiefs to get young women, many of them underage brides, back to school. According to UNICEF, 9% of Malawian girls are married by the age of 15, and one in two by the time they turn 18 years old. In 2017 MPs voted to change the constitution to make marriage before the age of 18 illegal.
