Ending Child Marriage

More than 650 million girls and women alive today were married as children — before they were 18 years old. An estimated 12 million girls are married in childhood each year. Child marriage violates girls’ rights to health, education and safety. With its social, cultural and economic ramifications, child marriage must be seen as a major obstacle to sustainable development and a fairer future for all children.

Human Trafficking

An Advocacy campaign initiated in previous bienniums and continues in many clubs where their community is affected by such acts of violence.

Poster Project
