In Buwunga Village, Judith’s dream of becoming a medical nurse was about to be snatched away—along with her childhood. At only 12, she was presented to the man who would soon be her husband. NIRP staff and community workers met with Judith’s parents, explaining the physical and psychological dangers of early marriage, and the country’s laws against the practice.

The wedding was called off. NIRP empowers children and their families in every community by giving them tools and protecting children from abuse and exploitation, including awareness of the laws that protect them. Join us
