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

  • Poverty

Amar Sonar Poribar (ASP) is our community-led program, born in 2003, aimed to prevent child marriage, through education, awareness, community mobilitation, advocacy and peer-to-peer support in rural south west area of Bangladesh. The unspoken consequence of the pandemic is the increase in early marriages, due to the lack of control over the territory and the closure of schools for quite 20 months. Our commitment today is to reactivate the interventions aimed at stemming this increase.
