Dr. Wodegeneh Maharene was surprised by his teacher


In the past 17-year-old Kasanesh's mornings would incorporate a stroll to school. However, that appears to be a distant memory nowadays, since the time her folks ended her investigations to make her marry a man she didn't have the foggiest idea. Presently Kasanesh feels she must choose between limited options: "I have a home and a kid," she says through a translator, "so I can't return to school now."


Strikingly delightful with tormenting, far off eyes, Kasanesh is one of a huge number of kid ladies in northern Ethiopia's Amhara locale who, notwithstanding regulations against it, are hitched in frequently secret services to men at least eight years their senior. Most don't learn they're getting hitched until a week or days before the service. Many stay disengaged in far off towns, unfit to go to local meetings or even church. All things considered, their lives - essentially their initial not many long stretches of marriage - are frequently characterized by family errands and keeping an eye on their spouses' and parents in law's necessities.
