The gift of childhood


Every year, 12 million girls marry before the age of 18. Child marriage is a human rights violation that robs girls of their childhood and can impact on their personal development and wellbeing. It is a practice that still happens across many countries, cultures and religions.

In Kenya, Lucy* was only 14 years old when she was married off by her family. Her biggest dream was to complete her education, which is frowned upon after marriage.

£31 could enable our members around the world to protect girls from early marriages and provide them with the support to continue their education which can unlock a world of opportunities.
