Striking Caricatures Of Forced Marriages Created By Syrian Refugee Girls - DesignTAXI.com: The number of Syrian refugees girls forced into early marriages have doubled since 2011, reported international non-governmental organization, Save the Children.
According to Save the Children, some parents resorted to marrying off their young daughters to keep them "protected" from extreme poverty and fears of sexual violence.
In light of this news, a group of young girls from the Za’atari refugee camp in Jordan attended sessions that raise awareness about the dangers of child marriage.
The girls were asked to create caricatures based on what they learnt and experienced in their communities.
Their drawings paint a solemn picture, often highlighting their innocence, haplessness, and desire for freedom.
