Child Marriage: A Global Crisis

If nothing is done to stop current trends, more than 140 million girls will be married as children by 2020.

Girls married early are more likely to experience violence, abuse and forced sexual relations.

Infant deaths are 50% higher among babies born to mothers under 20.

Each year of marriage before adulthood reduces a girl’s literacy by 5.6%.

This is why we want you to join us in the #runtoendchildmarriage June 1; every girl and woman should have a say in their future.
