Girls Not Brides is a global partnership of more than 1,500 civil society organisations from over 100 countries committed to ending child marriage and enabling girls to fulfil their potential.
Members are based throughout Africa, Asia, the Middle East, Europe and the Americas. We share the conviction that every girl has the right to lead the life that she chooses and that, by ending child marriage, we can achieve a safer, healthier and more prosperous future for all.
Girls Not Brides members bring child marriage to global attention, build an understanding of what it will take to end child marriage and call for the laws, policies and programmes that will make a difference in the lives of millions of girls.
The project, which is funded by the Global Partnership for Education’s Education Out Loud fund, seeks to address the interlinked problems of child marriage and girls’ lack of access to quality education. It focuses on countries in Francophone West Africa (especially Burkina Faso and Niger), which have some of the highest rates of child marriage and out-of-school girls, and which are likely to be even more impacted due to the COVID-19 crisis.
The project’s overall objective is to “galvanize civil society organisations and actors working on education and child marriage in West Africa and internationally, to share learning and strengthen collective advocacy for the implementation of laws, policies and programmes which improve girls’ access and retention in quality education and contribute to ending child marriage”.
