As we celebrate the ‪#‎DayofTheAfricanChild‬ - June 16, HOFNA Speaks out with a voice louder than ever - The time to ‪#‎end‬ ‪#‎ChildMarriage‬ is NOW!

\r\n

40% of girls in sub-Saharan Africa are married as children. That\'s two in every five girls. 

\r\n

Child marriage disempowers girls for life. It deprives them of their health, education and a chance to prosper. It also holds back their families, communities and the whole of Africa.

\r\n

So far, much progress has been made to put an end to child marriage, but much more still needs to be done. We must accelerate our efforts to end child marriage!!

\r\n

Join us!!
