Greetings Friends and TYTW Supporters!

Too Young To Wed (TYTW) is excited to announce we have partnered with Global Giving to launch our Adolescent Girls Photography Workshop funding campaign!

Born out of TYTW’s strong community ties, our immersive five-day workshops bring former child brides and at-risk girls together to help them process their trauma, gain confidence, and communicate their stories using the power of photography.

You can help make real change in these girls’ lives. For example:

  • Only $10 provides an attendee with a personal hygiene kit. $10 more pays for a trauma training workbook.
  • $25 covers an attendee’s personal expenses during the workshop.
  • $100 pays for an attendee’s travel costs to and from the workshop.
  • And $250 covers the cost the workshop for one girl, including materials and meals.

"I was married when I was very young," says Maria, 14, pictured here. "I used to sell milk to get food and sleep in the forest because I [didn’t] have a place to sleep. Society should stop bad practices, because what I have been through was so hard for me. After my education, I would like to be a nurse so that I can help other girls like me."
