Why Unicef Won't Rest Until We Reach Every Child in Danger

For too long, the world has tolerated widespread violence against children that leaves millions of children unsafe in their homes, schools and communities, presenting a significant barrier towards reaching overall development aims. Chad, for example, has the third highest rate of child marriage in the world. Child marriage often compromises a girl's development by resulting in early pregnancy and social isolation, interrupting her schooling, limiting her opportunities for career and vocational advancement and placing her at increased risk of domestic violence... The future of countries like Chad depend on us ensuring that the promises we make to the world's children in September are upheld, and that we fulfil our commitment to ensure that no child is left behind, no matter their circumstance.
