Atop Ghazipur landfill, a 70-acre mountain of trash, 7-year-old Zarina salvages items to sell in Delhi, India. Like girls in many parts of the world, she lives in poverty with little access to education. It is in these situation that families find child marriage to be the best option for their girls -- not realizing they are only perpetuating the cycle of poverty.

A girl is married every two seconds around the world. Stephanie Sinclair @stephsinclairpix here and I’ve been documenting the impacts of child marriage for almost 15 years, looking at how it manifests itself in the more than 50 countries worldwide. I’ve since started a nonprofit organization called @tooyoungtowed to #protectgirlsrights and #endchildmarriage. For the next 4 days I am taking over this feed to share my work. I appreciate your following along!

Through Nov. 26th you can visit www.TOOYOUNGTOWED.ORG/PRINTSALE to purchase an 8.5x11 print to support our future Tehani Photo Workshops - where vulnerable girls empowered to share their stories and raise their voices through photography. For those in Washington D.C., you can see some of their images currently on display with the as part of the #WWPh2017 exhibit at the Dupont Underground. #tooyoungotwed #printsale #india #girls #letgirlslearn 1650127256386046640_222347211

View vincenza_cochran_48's Instagram Photo by Stephanie Sinclair @stephsinclairpix @tooyoungtowed // Sisters Yagana, 21, Yakaka, 19 and Falimata, 14, were all abducted and held captive by Boko Haram until their escape. “After invading Bama, the Boko Haram insurgents came to my house, one of them saw me and said, ‘I want to marry you,’” Yakaka told me a year ago. "I said, ‘My parents will not give me to you. Then he said, ‘O.K., that is easy. Let me kill them, so that you will now be the one to decide.’ We got married in the Sambisa forest. Three months later, my husband was killed. I was pregnant by that point.” The kidnapping of young girls by Boko Haram, was not uncommon in northern Nigeria, yet it was only when the group abducted 276 Chibok schoolgirls from their dormitory in 2014 that the world took notice. With the mantra #BringBackOurGirls, the issue exploded on social media. But with little news from the remote region, the public’s interest waned. Nearly four years later it’s now becoming apparent that the Chibok abductions were just one instance of a profoundly disturbing tactic: child marriage used as a weapon of war -- a practice that has lead to the kidnapping of thousands of girls in the region.

The five-day workshop brought together 18 brave girls to not only help them gain the skills to become budding photojournalists, but learn tools to manage their trauma, express themselves, advocate for the rights of girls’ and become mentors to subsequent workshop participants.

Then he said, 'OK, that is easy. Let me kill them, so that you will now be the one to decide.' We got married in the Sambisa forest. 3 months later, my husband was killed. I was pregnant by that point.” The kidnapping of young girls by Boko Haram was not uncommon in northern Nigeria, yet it was only when the group abducted 276 Chibok schoolgirls from their dormitory in 2014 that the world took notice. With #BringBackOurGirls, the issue exploded on social media. But with little news from the remote region, the public’s interest waned. Nearly 4 years later it’s apparent that the Chibok abductions were just one instance of a profoundly disturbing tactic: child marriage as a weapon of war – a practice that's lead to the kidnapping of thousands of girls in the region.
