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
