World Vision's programmes endeavour to contribute to the well-being of children, ensuring that their rights are protected and that they get to experience life in all its fullness within their communities. In 2018, more than 65 children and youth clubs, such as the one attended by 18-year-old Houda (featured below), were trained on the protection of children within World Vision's operation areas across Mauritania.
'No to Child Marriage' with Houda!
"My name is Houda, I'm 18 years old and a freshman at Kankossa high school. I've been involved in a kids' club for 3 years. In the club, we often have recreational activities like theatre and singing. Thanks to World Vision Mauritania's support, we have been trained on children's rights and protection. As a result, we have conducted awareness-raising activities for girls' education and against child marriage within Kankossa households."
As an organization, World Vision believes that a world without violence against children is possible. Click here to learn about how you can help us fight child marriage in Mauritania from wherever you are in the world.
