UNICEF promotes the rights and wellbeing of every child, in everything we do. Together with our partners, we work in 190 countries and territories to translate that commitment into practical action, focusing special effort on reaching the most vulnerable and excluded children, to the benefit of all children, everywhere.

October 2009: China (age 15) lives in Uttar Bollar Hat Village. She was married at age 12 and is now pregnant. Bangladesh’s legal marrying age is 18, but 64 per cent of brides are younger than that, and suffer higher rates of physical and sexual violence than married women. Poverty contributes to early marriage because dowries, outlawed since 1980, also persist. “It costs more to marry [girls] off as they grow older,” said a neighbour.
