The Lucie Foundation is proud to be doing a fund raiser for Stephanie Sinclair’s non-profit in conjunction with The Story Behind The Image. The mission of Too Young to Wed (TYTW) is to empower girls and end child marriage globally. Led by National Geographic photojournalist and activist Stephanie Sinclair, TYTW provides visual evidence of the human rights challenges faced by women and girls, amplifies their courageous voices, and inspires the global community to act—transforming influential advocacy into tangible action in the communities where the girls in our images live. In addition to its original reporting and advocacy work, TYTW’s programs support the protection, education, psychosocial wellbeing, and economic empowerment of child marriage survivors in areas where the abuse is most egregious and underreported, including in Kenya, Nepal, Yemen, Nigeria, and India.
