VOW for Girls is a growing global movement that partners with wedding professionals, couples, and leading wedding brands to join together to end the international child marriage crisis. Count to three. 1...2...3... a child just became a bride. Every year, 12 million girls are married before they turn 18 - that’s 1 girl every 3 seconds.
VOW believes in locally-driven solutions. And thanks to generous donors who fund VOW’s staff and infrastructure, 100% of the funds raised are invested in effective but underfunded local efforts in communities around the world that advance girls’ rights by providing education, job training, and vital life skills, so girls can own their futures.
VOW finds that the more organizations engage directly with girls on a consistent basis, the more impact they have. Over 175 grassroots organizations in six countries currently receive grants, and 85% of those grantees are women-led organizations. To date, 260,000 girls have been directly impacted and 1.6 million people have been indirectly impacted. Learn more about VOW and how to get involved at Vow for Girls
