Young Moms

“Young Mom 1” / Kiunga, Western Province, Papua New Guinea / June 2013

It seems that women in the rural areas of Papua New Guinea marry or bear a child at a very young age.  During my visits to PNG villages, I often notice young girls carrying a child who I thought was a sibling only to find out that the child was actually the girl’s baby.  The girls in these photos are just of two of those young moms I found during my recent trip to PNG.
