As an organization working with vulnerable children around the world, one of the major obstacles we encounter is the lack of reliable data on children in many countries. When dealing with children living in orphanages or outside the home, information is sparse, and yet so vital to making meaningful change. Accurate information is needed to best serve the needs of these vulnerable children, and there is now a movement urging the UN to make sure these children are included in the statistical map.

A year after the first Girl Summit was held, the organization Girls Not Brides looked at the progress made on the goals created at the summit. As their infographic shows, they have been working on ending child marriage through empowering girls, advocating on their behalf and working in the communities, among other efforts. All of us at Kitechild fully support the Girls Not Brides movement and know that if we all work together, we can make this a better place for all children to grow up.
