Child Marriage Interactive Map

The Ford Foundation along with the Girls Not Brides campaign released a child marriage interactive map, examining 30 countries with high rates of child marriage. The website shows statistics by marriage age, legal age of marriage, secondary education, maternal morality rates, and early childbearing.

The website contains a partner index of the Girls Not Brides campaign and its more than 100 partner organisations. The Global Partnership to End Child Marriage was initiated by Archbishop Desmond Tutu and Mary Robinson of  The Elders; Ford Foundation President Luis Ubiñas; and Jennifer Buffett, NoVo Foundation president and co-chair.
