Every two seconds, a child becomes a victim of forced marriage.1 This egregious child rights violation robs millions of their childhoods, substituting a life of misery and hardship.

Girls like Maria*, who at 13 was forced to become the sixth wife of a 70-year-old man. When she resisted, her father told her: “If you don’t go to join your husband, I will kill you.”2

Join our movement to end forced child marriage and help girls like Maria.

Right now world leaders, government officials and civil society can make ending forced marriage a priority. Sustainable Development Goal 5.3 has put ending forced marriage on the global agenda and with our support for this goal we can help change the lives of girls like Maria for the better.

But we need people like you to help push governments and civil society to make ending this abhorrent practice a priority.

Case by case, country by country, we will push lawmakers and politicians to protect children from this abhorrent practice.

Girls have the right to decide for their own on which is going to be their husbands, if they want a husband!

There is no “one best way” of fighting forced marriages of young girls, nevertheless,and in order to make the world better,fairer place, and to give young girls the opportunity to be all that they can be,we have to put enough efforts for youth -led development .

Its horrible that this has gone on as long as it has.

I believe marriage should be a partnership between two consenting adults. That no man, woman or child should ever be forced into a marriage.

I pledge to fight against forced marriage, in all its forms and express my support for Sustainable Development Goal 5.3 to end this slavery practice by 2030.

Freedom United will protect your privacy while updating you on campaigns, news and stories about modern slavery.
