Petition: Join our campaign to end child marriage

12,472 Actions Taken / Goal 15,000

More than 250 million women alive today were married before their 15th birthday, many against their will. Child marriage robs them of their childhoods, education, health and freedom. And so, it subjects girls to rape and abuse for the rest of their lives. Find out how signing our petition makes a difference.

ActionAid women's groups Monrovia

Girls living in the poorest, rural areas of sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia are the most vulnerable. As populations continue to grow, hundreds of millions of girls remain at risk.

Local ActionAid workers are working to end child marriage in their communities – bringing perpetrators to justice, educating communities on the negative effects of child marriage, and empowering girls to have a voice and say no. Visit our petition page here.

ActionAid also campaigns at a regional, national and international level to end forced marriage. Please, consider donating for this cause to end child marriage and its terrible effects. Join our community of kind donors here.
