Help Her Look Forward to a Bright Future

Around the world today, there are more than 67 million women 20-24 years old who were forced into marriage before their 18th birthday. Making a girl marry at an early age — when she's only 8, 10, 12 years old — drastically reduces her chances of getting an education, leading a healthy life and reaching her full potential.

This tragic practice perpetuates extreme poverty not only for the child brides, but for their families and communities, too.

Fact: 39,000 girls become child brides every single day.

Fact: A child bride is significantly more likely to die in childbirth, be physically abused and be infected with HIV.

Fact: Impoverished parents often believe that child marriage will protect their daughters. In fact, however, it results in lost development opportunities, limited life options and poor health.

Your support of CARE today will help us carry out poverty-fighting programs around the world, including those designed to end child marriage for good!

Fact: Girls who complete secondary school are six times less likely to become child brides.

Please help girls build a brighter future for themselves and the world around them by making a tax-deductible gift today.
