This story was written for World Pulse’s Girls Transform the World Digital Action Campaign.

World Pulse believes that women's stories, recommendations, and collective rising leadership can—and will—bring girls greater access to education which will transform their lives, their families, and communities. The Girls Transform Campaign elicits insightful content from young women on the ground, strengthens their confidence as women, and ensures that influencers and powerful institutions hear their stories.

Thank you Sophia for writing and sharing this thoughtful piece. I have known for a long time about the problem of early marriage in the "abstract," but your piece helped to make it much more real for me. By combining statistics and reflections on policy with a strong example of a single girl's life and how it was impacted by the practice of early marriage, you helped me to connect to this issue on the ground.

You mention several policy initiatives in your piece - what do you think is the most likely to succeed or to be effective in changing community practices?

Thank you and I hope you keep up your inspired work on behalf of the women of Tanzania.

keep well,
