Let’s Help Girls Say “I Don’t”
to Child Marriage

Every year, more than 12 million girls are married before they turn 18. Some are as young as 8 years old. Child marriage happens across countries, cultures, and religions. It is a human rights violation that deprives girls of an education and locks them into a lifetime of poverty.

Today, the wedding industry is centered on the idea of celebrating couples who choose each other. This makes it uniquely positioned to take a stand on the global issue of child marriage and as couples say “I Do” they can help girls around the world say “I Don’t” or “Not Yet.”

VOW Pro is a program uniquely created for wedding professionals, providing easy ways to help raise awareness and funds to end child marriage. Join this global network and stand up for the rights of girls to choose their own futures.
