Help a girl stay in school and escape a life as a child bride
Support our #UnlockFutures appeal and the UK Government will DOUBLE your donation.
6 out of every 10 girls become child brides in rural Africa. Locked in a cycle of poverty and hopelessness they face grave risks: HIV/AIDS, domestic abuse, and death as an early teen during pregnancy and childbirth. Without education or employment, the future will remain locked for generations of girls.
There's hope — school. By staying in school, a girl can avoid child marriage and pregnancy. Camfed's peer support GirlGuardian programme helps keep these girls in school, unlocking opportunities to escape poverty and realize life's full potential.
