More than 650 million women and girls alive today were married before they turned 18. Child marriage violates girls’ rights to health, education and safety. That is why Zonta International is committed to ending child marriage.
You too can make a difference. In addition to Zonta International’s support of the UNICEF-UNFPA Global Programme to End Child Marriage, we hope that clubs and individual members will plan their own local and national efforts to help end this human rights violation.
Please visit the new Ending Child Marriage Tools page for information about child marriage, toolkits and resources to help you in your efforts.
