Stand Up for Girls: Help Prevent Child Marriage

Want child marriage to stop? Say “I do” today! Every signature helps us undermine the practice of child marriage and advance equality for girls.

Prevent Child Marriage

Somewhere in the world, a girl is waking up on her wedding day.

She’s not alone. Every day, 41,000 girls are forced into early marriage.

They do not want to be child brides. But tradition and poverty have combined to limit their choices and convince their families and communities that this is the only option.

On the one hand, we know the long term solutions to fighting child marriage — girls’ education, community involvement, registration at birth and awareness-building campaigns. On the other hand, we need more support if we’re going to be able to implement these solutions more broadly.

Child marriage is a violation of children’s human rights and robs millions of girls of their childhood. So we’re building a movement of people just like you to help fight it.

My name is Dario, I’m 44 years young and I live in Croatia (at the moment). I’m not a writer, so please don’t expect any kind of up level stories or posts from me! 😉 I’m just trying to do my best to put a smile on everyone’s face whenever it’s possible.
