Photographer Stephanie Sinclair, through her photo project, aims to raise funds for child-brides.

There are photos of girls named Mejgon, Niruta, etc who were married off during their childhood. Mejgon said, “In my whole life, I’ve never felt love.”560075eb1c00006b00757908 560127622000002500242c2c

This photograph series called “Too Young To Wed” aims to raise awareness and funds for such girls. Stephanie said, The fact that I was powerless to do anything about it has been one of the main reasons why I continued the project and why I’m still working on it today.”

Her initiative will also support the Samburu Girls Foundation in Kenya and few NGOs in Ethiopia as well.560128b21c00002500082b8e

Stephanie said, “Our main focus will always be to provide powerful visual storytelling, then bring our girls’ stories to the world to help inspire an end to child marriage. We would also like to widen the scope of these on the ground projects. It’s important to us that the communities, who share their stories and are open to change, find the support they need.”
