Ilse Guambe is a 15-year-old mother who's been married for two years. Child brides and teen pregnancies are widespread in Mozambique. More than half the country's girls are wed before they've reached the age of majority.

The UN's Population Fund is using a broadly based educational campaign to try to change people's minds about the issue - especially the minds of village elders. One important aspect of the issue is adequate medical care for young girls who've suffered complications from giving birth.
