Álida, Rosy and Mayra are three young campaigners living in Carchá municipality,Guatemala. They have been friends for years and live close to each other in nearby communities. Together they have taken part in a number of workshops run by Plan International to learn about their rights, protection, self-esteem and leadership skills. The friends recently took part in a successful campaign to end child marriage in Guatemala led by Plan International as part of our Because I am a Girl movement, which saw the age of marriage raised to 18.
