Theatre helps in Battle Against Child Marriage in Bosnia

When looking deeper into the child marriage issue in Bosnia, it is evident that mainly girls in marginalized and impoverished groups are targeted.A recent survey shows that under one percent of girls aged 15-19 have already been married. However, the numbers differed with disadvantaged and minority communities in Bosnia. As seen in the Roma community, 38 percent of 15 to 19-year-olds had already been married. This is drastically higher. The findings suggest a lack of education may contribute to the higher number of child marriages.Child brides are more likely to have early pregnancies, often before their bodies are ready. Pregnancy related issues are the number one cause of death in older adolescent girls. Child brides are also often victims of domestic violence. As they are often in positions where they cannot complete their educational pursuits, child brides have limited chances of escaping poverty.The Roma, the largest and most disadvantaged group in Bosnia, have seen many girls married off at the young ages of 15 and 16. “Ruza,” the theatrical performance, sets out to spread a message to these affected groups. The performance is intended to be interactive as it includes discussions and debates supervised by a teacher or a social worker.The World Human Accountability Organization recognizes the power education has in preventing problems such as child marriage. WHAO is dedicated to assisting in creating a world where all people have access to quality education.
