Every year, an estimated two million girls give birth before they turn 15. Young mothers face great risk of complications and death from pregnancy and childbirth, yet they are often invisible in national and global statistics and excluded from development policies and programmes. We are committed to make all girls visible, protect their rights and promote their health, education and well-being.
Helps us make young mothers visible by sharing their stories.
"It's difficult being a mother. I don't have time to play anymore. I have to stay at home to take care of my daughter and wash nappies. Before I had a baby, I used to play and go wherever I wanted. I liked to play football."
