Producers of “Child Brides Stolen Lives” received the
2008 Better Day Award: Watch the film here...
Due to laws, traditions and cultures, very early child marriage occurs
in many countries around the world. This leads to extreme abuse and
trauma for these young girls who are a part of this. “Child Brides:
Stolen Lives” outlines the very sad and difficult aspects of early child
marriage. Emmy Award winning journalist Maria Hinojosa and PBS
received our award for this film.  Their work provides us with  much
awareness and understanding of this global problem. The film takes us
on a journey into the lives of girls who have experienced the abuse of
early child marriage. Girls rights to safety and happiness should be
protected  at all times.
Three young founders started “HARVARDWOOD” in 1999. Now Harvardwood, the Arts,
Media and Entertainment branch for Harvard University has thousands of members from
around the world. What three young Harvardians had the vision to create has now become
a well established much needed place for Harvard Alumni to share ideas, network and find
opportunities.
