Airs Sunday, May 10, at 6 p.m. UNICEF reports there are 250 million women worldwide who were married before they turned 15. Now, lawmakers, NGOs, and world leaders are banding together to end the practice.
This month, America Abroad travels to Tanzania, Ethiopia, Nepal, and Pakistan to talk to individuals and organizations working to change laws and change minds about child marriage. We also talk to Mabel van Oranje, the founder of Girls Not Brides, who aim to end child marriage in one generation.

In Louisiana, 36 nongovernmental organizations or NGOs have until the end of the month to file progress reports with the state or risk being sued by the new Office of Debt Recovery for the collection of almost $4.5 million dollars. State Treasurer John Kennedy said his department has reached out to the organizations in numerous ways, and recently mailed final demand letters. He said he doesn’t agree with the State Legislature doling out money to NGOs in the first place.
