#IamCOMMITTED against #Teenagepregnancy: What about YOU ?

Child marriage remains one of the silent evils in Uganda today. So silent that many young girls are being married off openly and while the communities turn their heads in oblivion.

Amani Initiative believes that to be in position to fight against teenage pregnancy and child marriage, each one of us will need to make that decision to commit to the cause.

#IamCOMMITTED campaign against teenage pregnancy and child marriage aims at bringing together parents, boys, girls, mothers, fathers, government, religious leaders, teachers, elders, cultural leaders and all other people not mentioned to commit to the cause against child marriage.
