The United Nations has called the war in Yemen the world’s worst humanitarian crisis, and a recent UN report estimated that more than two-thirds of Yemeni girls are now being married off before 18, compared to 50 percent before the start of the conflict. When a child becomes a bride, she loses the chance to go to school, the right to make decisions about her health, and the ability to determine her future. In 2011 @natgeo published my story, titled @tooyoungtowed; I’ve since created a nonprofit organization of the same name to #empowergirls and #endchildmarriage. In partnership with @solidariosinfronteras, we are now providing 25,000 breakfasts to schoolgirls in war-torn Yemen as an incentive for parents to keep girls in school, when a looming famine makes child marriage an increasingly attractive option to families desperate for one less mouth to feed.

At the World’s End | Photograph by Jonathan Z. Lee (@jonathanzlee)
.
“South Georgia is as wild as it gets. It is also a challenging place to photograph. How do you do such a place justice? How do you find a singular story amidst the chaos of thousands upon thousands of creatures in one place?,” writes #YourShotPhotographer Jonathan Z. Lee. “These three penguins were a gift — perched on a rock in the middle of a shallow pool, surrounded by their comrades and the dramatic peaks in the background just as the light was breaking through. They did not mind my company and happily let me shoot at 24mm.”

“I love #YourShotPhotographer Stephanie Thomson’s comment: ‘This is such a beautiful moment worth waiting for Jonathan. I can feel the love and sense of protection coming from the penguins as they stand alone on that rock. The slight sunburst and break in the clouds is an excellent frame that emphasizes your subjects beautifully. I also love your title, as if these penguins are huddling together at the World’s End. Beautiful work!” — @natgeoyourshot Producer David Y. Lee (@davidylee)

The World at Night project
A couple of nights ago in a remote corner of the Death Valley, California, one of the driest places on the planet and a vast Dark Sky Park, where natural night is protected from light pollution. Stars of Orion, the Hunter, are the icons of the winter sky, next to Sirius, the brightest star in the Earth night sky. The yellow glow on the horizon, from the surprising distance of 150 miles, is the light of Los Angeles.
Follow me @babaktafreshi for photos that take you from the Earth to the universe.

Weekend Hashtag Project: #WHPjoyful
This weekend the challenge is to make images and videos that capture a spirit of joy, as in this featured photo from Tony Noël (@tony_noel). Here are some tips to get you started:
Head out. Think about the places you go that make you feel free and joyful. Set up an excursion — it can be solo or with a group of friends — to take pictures, make videos and enjoy the day.
Express your joy. Get creative with the action in your submission and think about the actions that bring you joy — like dancing, drawing and hiking — or express an emotional release, like a big belly laugh.
Consider symbols. Birds in flight, flowers and hearts, the wind in your hair, tossing leaves into the air, or even something as simple as your body language can express joy and freedom.
PROJECT RULES: Please add the #WHPjoyful hashtag only to photos and videos shared over this weekend and only submit your own visuals to the project. By adding the #WHPjoyful hashtag, you consent to and grant Instagram all rights to repost your photo or video. If you include music in your video submissions, please only use music to which you own the rights. Any tagged photo or video shared over the weekend with the #WHPjoyful hashtag is eligible for the project and, if selected, to be featured next week.

@jassensf pictures thousands of Volkswagen and Audi cars sitting idle in the Mojave Desert near Victorville, California. Diesel models manufactured from 2009 to 2015 intentionally cheated emissions tests mandated by the Environmental Protection Agency. Following the scandal, VW recalled millions of cars. Jassen Todorov says, "By capturing scenes like this one, I hope we will all become more conscious and more caring for our beautiful planet.
