So why does this matter? And why should you take action to stop it?
Because child marriage robs girls of the right to make decisions about their own lives. Child brides are more likely to:
- Drop out of school
- Experience violence
- Live in poverty
Today, you can help empower girls to resist the harmful practice of child marriage.
One day, we will live in a world where all women and girls have the freedom to determine their own futures.
