Help stop child marriage and protect girls from the effects of COVID-19

COVID-19 has changed life for us all. But its economic effects are driving the world’s most vulnerable families deeper into poverty. Desperate parents are marrying their daughters off early – just so they and their families can eat. Already, 23 girls under 18 are married every minute. And because of the pandemic, the United Nations forecasts 13 million more child marriages over the next 10 years.

Early marriage can endanger a girl’s health, cut short her education, limit her hopes and dreams, and increase her likelihood of remaining in poverty.  

Thank you Australia.

Together we have sponsored 654 girls, opening up their opportunities and avoiding child marriage!

There are still many girls to be sponsored.
