Pakistani teenager, Hadiqa Bashir

Fighting child marriage 抵制儿童婚姻


Hadiqa Bashir is a 14 year old with a cause - she wants to end child marriage in her community.

After school, she goes to other neighbourhoods in Pakistan's north-western Swat valley to raise awareness.

Such marriages are considered the norm for keeping land in the family or settling disputes.

It could take a long time for customs to change, but Hadiqa hopes that at least some of the girls can have a better future.
