A Childhood, not Marriage
28 January 2022
This publication summarizes the knowledge and experiences of numerous stakeholders who have, together with UNICEF, participated in the implementation of the three-year project “Towards ending child marriage in Serbia” (2018-2020).
Today, there are 650 million girls and women around the world who got married as girls. If the risks leading to child marriage are not eliminated, there will be another 170 million of them by 2030.
In Serbia, 112,000 of girls and women got married as girls. If we do not work on eliminating the risks that lead to child marriages by 2030, there will be another 14,000.
