Reality in Afghanistan

No options other than marrying her off

“I already promised her to one of our relatives. If I don’t receive any assistance, I will have no choice. That would be better for her and for us too,” says Badro, caressing her granddaughter Anisa’s head. Meanwhile, the little girl, aged just 13, stares at the floor in silence. None of Badro’s granddaughters have been to school, because there is not even one school in their village that offers classes for girls. Previously, bad weather had caused crop failure and loss of livestock, and when their drinking water wells dried up, Badro and her family left home and headed westward. Since then, their situation has only gone from bad to worse.

Just like many girls in Afghanistan, 13-year-old Anisa (left) not only has no access to education, but is also at risk of child marriage.
