Every girl has power. But it’s only when girls are free to make choices about their own lives and bodies that they can access that power and create their own futures.
Every year, millions of girls around the world are married before the age of 18. We want to see a world where girls live free from child, early and forced marriage and unions, and have the opportunities and the agency to achieve their dreams.
Our Power to Girls campaign calls for immediate and urgent action to end child marriage. Join our global rallying cry as Girls Not Brides and our member organisations call on decision makers to act now, so girls are the ones deciding if, when and who to marry.
You have the power to end child marriage. Will you? Girls need governments, donors and duty bearers to make sure that their rights and futures are a political and financial priority. We are calling on you to commit funds or take action to end child marriage.
Activists and civil society organisations
Every action and commitment to end child marriage matters, however big or small. Speaking out, together, is essential in urging governments around the world to act, and deliver on their commitments. Add your voice to the Power to Girls campaign and demand a better future for girls everywhere.
Support girls’ rights
Transform social norms
Focus on scale
Support civil society movements to drive change
Together, we have made 515 Power to Girls commitments to end child marriage.
Every voice and action counts. Join those governments, donors, duty bearers, civil society, girls and communities who have already made a commitment, and make sure that this is the last generation affected by child marriage.
Plan your campaign action
Our strength is in our collective voice as a global movement. This toolkit is for Girls Not Brides member organisations, civil society organisations and individuals to plan a Power to Girls campaign action. It gives step-by-step guidance on how to get involved in the campaign as well as a set of campaign resources, social media assets, and templates.
