Child marriage affects 650 million girls and young women around the world. 12 million girls become child brides every year - girls with an increased risk of HIV, malnutrition and early death. Early marriage is also a significant barrier to girls' access to education. If we do not accelerate our efforts to prevent this, it is estimated that 150 million additional girls will marry by 2020.
We believe in a world where every girl matters. By donating or choosing to sell your dress through Brides do Good, you help us take one step closer to making that a reality.
