What is Girls Not Brides?

Girls Not Brides is a global partnership of organisations working
to end child marriage all over the world.
Together, we aim to give a voice to girls at risk of child marriage,
to defend their rights to health and education,
and to give them the opportunities they need to fulfil their potential.

We also aim to support children who are or have been victims of child marriage,
 to increase awareness of the scale and impact of child marriage,
and to mobilise the support and resources needed to end child marriage.
We believe that our members can be more effective working together than working alone.
Our partnership will maximise our collective impact by pooling
efforts and resources, energies and experience.
