Child Marriage Hits Close To Home.
This past May Julie learns of a friend married at 16.

While in Malawi this May, Julie learned a friend had married. It was heartbreaking to see a 16 year old girl married, perpetuating the cycle of poverty.

What can be done? 

As we cultivate hope with our Malawian friends, we're breaking into a vicious cycle that goes something like this:

Education costs - tuition must be earned - schooling unlocks earning potential but ... education costs. A lack of income locks families out of the education that could help them out of poverty. 

Love a Village works to break this cycle by helping with acess to education and income generating activities.  Through this, we hope to help families become self-sustaining.
Helping girls stay in school 
Every child is entitled to an education.  Staying in school can be especially difficult for girls in Malawi. Sadly, they fail to complete schooling much more often than their boy peers.  Girls carry a heavier burden when it comes to caring for younger siblings and sick elders and performing household chores. Childhood marriage also robs many girls of their opportunity. The simple lack of solutions around feminine hygiene can also be a huge barrier. 

Love a Village is helping.
