Alesha Dixon trip to Ghana for ActionAid’s campaign against child marriage

Alesha Dixon visits Ghana with ActionAid to the charities s campaign to end child marriage.
Alesha travelled with ActionAid to the Upper West Region of Ghana where teenage girls are regularly abducted for child marriage. These common kidnappings target young girls, remove them from their villages, families and schools leaving them isolated and their futures at risk.
ActionAid works to end child marriage on many fronts; from bringing perpetrators to justice, to changing minds and behaviours in local communities, to campaigning at a regional, national and international to influence policies and legislation to end violence against girls. The charity also focuses on empowering young girls to understand and live out their rights, and ensuring they have the choice to complete their education.
