Summary: On 22 July 2014 Christian Aid joined the Girl Summit - a global movement to put an end to female genital mutilation (FGM) and child marriage – hosted by the UK Prime Minister and jointly organised by the Department for International Development (DfID) and UNICEF. Nyaradzayi Gumbozvanda, of Christian Aid’s partner organisation World Young Women’s Christian Association (World YWCA), was lucky enough to attend. Here she talks to Press Officer Melanie Hargreaves about her own experiences of child marriage, how World YWCA is tackling the issue, and what her hopes are following the Girl Summit.
