Uthema shared UNFPA Maldives's post.October 11, 2018 at 2:24pm
In the Maldives the life of island girl is full of challenges. She will abandon school for paid work, marry at a very young age and bear one child or two, her husband will migrate to Male’, the capital city, and she will become the head of household and endure a life of privations alone and in silent. She will also become vulnerable to gender-based violence which affects 1 in 3 Maldivian women and girls. #GirlChildDay #GirlForce #GlobalGoals #GBV Watch the video live PSM News UNFPA Asia and the Pacific United Nations in Maldives Maldives Girl Guides Association Ministry of Environment and Energy, Maldives
