Ethiopia: Melka's Story

Last month, Women of Vision Director Cindy Breilh traveled to Chicago to share about World Vision’s work focused on women and girls, specifically through the Strong Women, Strong World initiative. She shared the story of Melka, a young girl in Ethiopia who was forced into marriage at the age of 14. Today, at 20, Melka teaches young girls about their rights and has intervened in several cases of forced marriage.

What are the barriers or obstacles to fullness of life for girls in Melka’s community?

What are the visible or invisible privileges of being male in Melka’s community?

Take some time today and pray for Melka and the millions of other girls facing these obstacles around the world.
