End Child Marriage in Tanzania

End Child Marriage in Tanzania

1 in 3 girls in Tanzania are married before their 18th birthday, in some regions this figure rises to nearly half of girls.

Marrying so young can have a devastating impact. Girls who are married before 18 are more likely to drop out of school, experience domestic abuse and to report their first sexual experience was forced. 

Will you stand with them? Join people across the globe, sign the petition and say no to child marriage. This petition will be delivered to MPs and decision makers in Tanzania.

Petition

Dear Members of Parliament ,

We are standing in solidarity with Tanzanian youth advocates who want to make child marriage illegal for everyone under 18. The Law of Marriage Act states that boys can be married at 18, and girls at 14, this must change.
