Memory Banda

Memory Banda is a tireless leader for girls’ rights around the world. At age 18, she led Malawi’s campaign that culminated in landmark legislation outlawing child marriage through her work with Rise Up and the Girl Empowerment Network of Malawi. Memory works with girl leaders to ensure that village chiefs ban child marriage, end sexual initiation practices, enable girls to finish school, and live safe from violence.
