Stories from the ground: child marriage in refugee camps

Organisation: Soutien Belge Overseas (SB Overseas) Year: 2018

This short report takes us through the stories of Serine, Ream, Nadine and Sarah, four Syrian refugee girls who got married after moving to Lebanon to escape the war in Syria.

To support these girls and many others, SB Overseas talks to girls and their families about the consequences of child marriage, and provides girls with vocational courses, opportunities to talk about their experience through drama workshops, and psychological support.
