Description/achievement of initiative
The Elders are pleased to contribute to the Global Strategy for Women's and Children's Health and the Every Woman Every Child effort by committing to establish Girls Not Brides: The Global Partnership to End Child Marriage. Girls Not Brides will bring together civil society organisations working to end child marriage. It will enable them to jointly raise awareness of the harmful impact of child marriage at the local, national and international levels; to learn from each other and develop better programs to address the practice; and to mobilise all necessary policy, financial and other support to end child marriage. Girls Not Brides will amplify the voices of girls at risk of child marriage and will support girls who are or have been married, all over the world. Girls Not Brides will defend the rights of girls to health and education and the opportunity to fulfil their potential.
