Abstract

Forced child marriages are often a lifeline for struggling low-income families in the DRC, but they have serious consequences for young girls and children’s development. Through a true story in the city of Goma, Bauma Balume reveals parents’ motivations for the practice and explores initiatives to address its occurrence.
