Raising voices against child marriages: Girls not Brides
Organized by: Anisha Agarwal
In many countries around the world teenage girls who are my age or younger are often married. So many of them lose their childhood too soon and worse, they lose the opportunity for an education leaving them powerless in an often male-dominated society. The organization called “Girls Not Brides” (www.girlsnotbrides.org) is helping raise awareness of this problem and is also attempting to empower these young girls so that they can improve their circumstances. I would like to raise money to empower teenage girls living in slums in India. Please help me in reaching my goal of raising $2000, and together we can make a difference in their lives.
