About Girls Not Brides

About Girls Not Brides

Girls Not Brides is a global partnership of more than 300 civil society organisations from over 50 countries working to address child marriage. Members are based throughout Africa, Asia, the Middle East, Europe and the Americas and are united by a commitment to end child marriage and enable girls to fulfil their potential.

Girls Not Brides and its members believe that we can be more effective working together than working alone. We aim to raise our collective voice to shatter the silence that has long surrounded the issue of child marriage and to draw attention to its harmful impact.

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.
