The Governments of the UK and Somalia will co-host an international conference on Somalia on 7 May in the UK. The conference aims to provide international support for the Government of Somalia as they rebuild their country after two decades of conflict.
In the run up to International Women's Day the British Embassy in Kabul talked to four Afghan women leaders and asked them what changes they would like to see in Afghanistan between this year and International Women's Day in 2014.
Summer holidays are the peak time for young people to be taken overseas and forced into marriage. In some cases they are taken on what they have been told is a holiday to visit family abroad, but in fact a marriage has been planned. Once abroad, victims are often even more isolated than they might have been in the UK and getting help is more difficult.
Remind young people to speak up if they think they or someone they are close to are in danger.
