Middle East Eye: Marriage can wait: Syrian teen in Jordan sets sights on starry career

“It’s a common argument to hear that early marriage was a widespread phenomenon back in Syria before the war, but now we can see it happening more and more as a coping mechanism,” says Samar Muhareb, the director of Arab Renaissance for Development and Democracy-Legal Aid (ARDD), a Jordanian NGO that uses litigation and advocacy to promote and protect human rights.

ARDD-Legal Aid actively works to combat early marriage and increase access to education, check out this article to learn more about the work we do!
