Benefits of becoming a member
Collaborate for change
Together, Girls Not Brides member organisations advocate for influential bodies to take action on child marriage at the global level. Many work collectively in their countries to advocate for relevant national laws, policies and action.
Increase your visibility
Member organisations can raise the profile of their work by being a part of our influential global Partnership. They can connect with the media and showcase their work on the Girls Not Brides website and other digital and physical spaces.
Learn from others
Members can connect with other organisations working to address child marriage, share their expertise and learn from each other’s successes and challenges. They can also build their skills and knowledge through events covering a variety of topics.
Power in unity
Stronger together, members make their voices heard by joining national, regional and global campaigns, and use key advocacy moments – such as the International Day of the Girl Child – to take collective action.
