Why are we running?

The period between diaper and veil is far too short for many girls in the world. Every 3 seconds, somewhere in the world, a girl is forced to get married while she is still a child. This is a serious violation of children's rights. Girls carry this with them for the rest of their lives. They don’t get the chance to go to school, therefore have no chance of a decent job and are dependent on others for an income. Child marriage is a recipe for lifelong problems, such as domestic violence and lasting medical consequences from pregnancies.

Plan International is committed to fight against child marriage. We do this on several fronts, because the causes are diverse and complex. Child marriage is caused by, among other things, poverty, discrimination, customs and inadequate legislation. On these and other fronts, we are trying to tackle the problem. For example, we are working worldwide on better and more education for girls. We also raise awareness, so that parents know the risks, girls know what their rights are and so that other involved respect those rights. We are also committed to get better legislation and that the enforcement of those laws are better supervised. We support (girls) clubs, with which girls fight for their own rights.

We do all our projects with and for girls. Only together, with all those involved, can we ensure lasting change.
