Every year, 12 million girls are married before the age of 18. They are denied their rights to health, education, and opportunity.
But when girls are allowed to fulfil their potential, everybody benefits. Girls Not Brides is a global partnership of over 1000 civil society organisations in more than 95 countries working to end child marriage.
Together, we bring child marriage to global attention, build an understanding of what it will take to end child marriage, and call for the laws, policies, and programmes that will make a difference in the life of millions of girls.
