In order to solve the problem of child marriages and stand in the way of this serious violation of human, and children's, rights, we all need to work together. We believe in a society in which every girl and every boy have a carefree childhood and an opportunity to go to school and develop their potentials. We envisaged this study as a step closer to that goal, and we thank all those who participated in its creation.
