This grant represents Canada’s institutional support to Girls Not Brides. Girls Not Brides uses these funds, along with other donors’ funding, to achieve its mandate. Girls Not Brides is a global partnership of more than 400 civil society organizations from over 60 countries working to address child marriage. Girls Not Brides aims to: (1) raise awareness of the harmful impact of child marriage by encouraging open, inclusive and informed discussion at the community, local, national and international level; (2) facilitate learning and coordination among organizations working to end child marriage; and (3) mobilize all necessary policy, financial and other support to end child marriage. Members of Girls Not Brides are based throughout Africa, Asia, the Middle East, Europe and the Americas and are united by a commitment to end child marriage and enable girls to fulfil their potential.
