MALAWI

Every 7 seconds a girl below 15 years is married. Many of them in the poverty stricken southern African country of Malawi. Theresa Kachindamoto, a brave female chief from the Ngoni tribe wants to change this and separates child marriages. Not without resistance and fight. We traveled to Malawi to meet Theresa and collected images and stories of young women; what we found was a lot of grey and not so much black and white.
