Story of MELKA- an Ethiopian teenager who was forced into marriage when she was 14 years old.
‘The sad truth is that Melka’s story is not unique. In Ethiopia, it’s estimated that 60 percent of girls will be married illegally before they turn 17. And early marriage is a problem worldwide — particularly in developing countries, where 1 in 3 girls is married before age 18, and 1 in 7 before age 15.’
