Meet Shamima

300 225 The Hunger Project Australia

Shamima used to be a shy housewife who never even dreamed about stepping outside her home, let alone being a role model in her community. But after being trained by The Hunger Project in women’s leadership, she mobilised 34 villagers to tackle the horrific custom of child marriage – and now have zero child marriages in their community. They went hut-to-hut telling people about this – and as a result, they stopped 5 child marriages in one year.
