Why We Vow

We see the potential in every girl and strive to ensure her rights are respected and her dreams protected. Every girl has the right to own her future. But every year, 12 million girls, some as young as 8, become child brides. No child should ever be a bride. Take a vow and help raise funds and raise awareness to provide safety, possibility and hope for girls globally.
