Girls Not Brides
Girls Not Brides is a global partnership committed to ending child marriage and enabling girls to fulfil their potential.
Girls Not Brides brings together civil society organisations from around the world. The Partnership now counts over 1000 members in more than 95 countries, based throughout Africa, South Asia, the Middle East, Europe and the Americas. Members are united by a commitment to end child marriage and enable girls to fulfil their potential.
Girls Not Brides works to 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 girls. Girls Not Brides was initiated in 2011 by The Elders, a group of eminent global leaders brought together by Nelson Mandela to promote peace and human rights worldwide.
