to Aisha's moving story #EndChildMarriage #UNGA73
*** Aisha*, fifteen, holds the hand of her daughter Rayan*, two, in the small home where she lives with her mother and brothers in #Somalia
. When Aisha turned thirteen, her father showed up and told her that he had made an agreement to marry her off to a friend of his who was around thirty years old. Aisha's mother protested and refused to agree to this but her father secretly took her off to another town where he forced Aisha to accept this arrangement and marry the older man.
Aisha had been married to the older man for less than six months when she returned home to her mother's house. By this time she was pregnant. Aisha left the marriage because she could not accept all the responsibilities she had been forced to accept in her marriage. Her husband did not take proper care of her and she was granted divorce. During her pregnancy, she suffered from anemia and often fell ill . She went through ten hours of labor before delivering her daughter, Rayan, by caesarean section.
Aisha was in grade 5 when she was forced to leave school to get married. She feels she cannot go back to school now because she has a child and she is too old to go back to grade 5, where she would be much older than the other students. She hopes that she can receive some vocational training so that she could learn a skill that would help her earn a living. She says that girls should be allowed to go to school and not be forced to marry early.
Aisha's story resonates with many girls across the world. We need to prevent their #EndofChildhood
by reaching them as early as possible to prevent them from enduring the negative consequences of child marriage.

Citz Artistic Director Adrian Jackson kicks off our #ArtsForSocialChange
meeting, warming up a room full to the brim with artists, activists and campaigners ready to chat all things social change!
A collaborative society – can unrepresented bodies truly represent, or do we need a to force a huge shift in our society? Link in bio.
Reasons why I encourage my kids to canvas with me:
1-they see first hand how much work is put into a campaign.
2-they get exercise walking after dinner and being outdoors.
3-they meet new people and practise their interpersonal skills.
4-they have responsibilities as part of the team. Jaya is fantastic at jotting down voter information and keeping me organized. Jeevan is...well...great at ringing doorbells and petting all of the dogs we meet!
The most important thing is that my kids have fun and enjoy this campaign. It’s still quality family time❤️

10 year old Abel took part in a Share the Journey walk and went to Number 10 to hand in a petition to Theresa May to urge the government to take action in the upcoming UN Global Compacts. ⠀
Thousands of you have joined together to walk over 100,000 miles in solidarity with refugees and migrants for the Share the Journey campaign. Whether on your own, in groups, on a volcano or around a hospital bed – you all found a special way to speak up for the rights of people forced to flee their homes. Thank you for all your hard work.⠀
