[Statistics] Child marriage and education

Child marriage limits girls’ access to quality education. When a girl gets married, she is often expected to drop out of school, ending her formal education. As a wife or mother, she is often expected to take care of the home, children and extended family.  Returning to school can be almost impossible for a married girl.

Keeping girls in school is one of the best ways to prevent child marriage. On the Girls not Brides website you will find key facts, impacts, common drivers and solutions on education and child marriage.
