Promoting Awareness

Knowing about a problem is the first step towards a solution. Although there is considerable publicity and support services for the victims of Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) and Honour Killing, very little if anything is known about child marriage in the UK and other developed countries.  This is mainly because politicians in the developing countries where the practice is prevalent prefer to call it “early marriage” to disguise the reality.  In addition, the former child wives who are now living in the UK and other developed countries are too embarrassed to tell their story and expose the horror.
