Power to Girls commitments

Featured commitments

Mary Robinson

  • Ireland

I support Power to Girls by committing empowering girls. We must address the issue of poverty and marginalisation, which lead to child marriage. We need to recognise that COVID has had a very real effect around the world of increasing the number of people in poverty and therefore increasing child marriage. Let's also work together to make sure girls in Afghanistan don’t get pushed into marriage and can stay in school

A Supporter

  • Mali

I was for 3 years coordinator of INGO and national CSO forums against child marriage. I am proud to have pushed the agenda against child marriage and GBV in Niger and West Africa which has resulted in concrete public policies that girls and women continue to benefit from. It is a fight that I will continue always and everywhere.

Baserat Khan Shinwari

  • Pakistan

I commit to ending child marriages by working with parents and community leaders and educating them about the negative consequences of child marriage, which can inspire them to change their views, speak up for girls’ rights and encourage others to do the same.
