Child marriage is an epidemic which has been allowed to sweep through countries like Nigeria, where at least 22 million child brides live today.
To raise awareness, SAGE Foundation is launching a new campaign centring on a short film created by Yassa Khan of Camp Productions and edited by Sam Hopkins, Lead Editor at Engine.
Filmed in Lagos, the poignant film features young girls affected by this traumatic and widespread problem. These child brides, each of whom became mothers before they turned 18, all long to continue their education, but instead they find themselves responsible for a child they don’t know how to raise and answering to a husband they know very little about.
The film also features the women working to abolish the laws that allow this to happen and those who are educating these young women so that they can reclaim their futures.

This professional campaign titled 'Just a Girl' was published in United Kingdom in April, 2022. It was created for the brand: SAGE Foundation, by ad agency: Camp Productions and Engine. This Film medium campaign is related to the Public Interest industry and contains 1 media asset. It was submitted about 2 years ago.
