Burkinabe girls making a stand against child marriage. 

In Burkina Faso 1 out of 2 girls will be married before the age of 18.  This leads to them unable to continue their education and they ultimately lose control of their lives.

UNICEF is working towards ending this practice by informing girls and young women on their rights. To promote UNICEF’s campaign, The Big Dance Challenge was choreographed by Iréne Tassembedo, featuring 1000 Burkinabe girls from different schools across the country dancing in protest against the harmful practice of early marriage.
