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.

Let's also work together to make sure girls in Afghanistan don’t get pushed into marriage and can stay in school
