“If we succeed in empowering girls, we will succeed in everything else,” – Desmond Tutu

Girls should be allowed to be girls, allowed to play, allowed to laugh, allowed to go to school. All children should have this possibility.

Let us not only mark our calendars today, the first International Day of the Girl Child, but let us mobilize ourselves into action. No girl should be married off against her will and be neglected the possibility to go to school.

No girl should be violated the way a child bride is violated.

A first step is to join the ongoing campaign to end child marriage through Too Young To Wed. Raise awareness and advocate for change.
