Description: Every 2 seconds, a girl under the age of 18 is married. Every minute, 30 girls become child brides. Every day, 43,000 young girls will be married. And tomorrow, and the day after that. The risks are plentiful. Child marriage increases risks of physical and sexual abuse at the hands of their husbands, who are sometimes twice their age.
Let's give girls equal access to opportunities so they can grow up to become educated and empowered women. We all have a part in ending child marriage. Let's change the story.

Description: Richelle dropped out of school after becoming pregnant at 16. Now 24, flexible learning provided by Plan International and the Philippines government has helped keep her dream of becoming a teacher alive.
Richelle's commitments at home and the time she needs to spend looking after her son Johnrey, who has cerebral palsy, mean she was unable to get back into education.
Across the Philippines there are many children and young people like Richelle who are unable to go to school because of teenage pregnancy, child marriage or child labour.
In response, Plan International is working alongside the Philippines Department of Education to provide flexible, informal learning for those who cannot go to school in 2 of the county’s poorest provinces, Masbate and Northern Samar.
To date we’ve helped over 2,200 children and young people to continue their education when they otherwise would not have been able to.
