Forced child marriage amongst the Syrian refugee population in Jordan is rising sharply1 as more and more families see child marriage as a way to lessen their financial burden and protect girls from sexual violence.2

Frontline agencies are working hard to stem the tide of child marriages with education and protection programmes, but are heavily underfunded. 3

We know these programs are reaching thousands of men, women and children talking about the dangers of early marriage and supporting survivors of sexual and gender based violence.4

Most of the world are doing the right thing. It is some of the world’s richest nations like Australia, the US and New Zealand that are not contributing their fair share of aid.5

Call on the world’s richest nations to help fund the fight to end child marriage in Jordan.
