The Child Brides: Send Them to School instead

by Educate Girls
Oct 16, 2012

17th October 2012 is Bonus Day!

Last year we had identified ~20,000 girls who were out of school and at risk of early marriage from Pali and Jalore districts.

To date we have enrolled over 10,000 out of those girls who are now enjoying their right to education.  However, we still need to enroll another 10,000. 

Today is Bonus Day on Global Giving. Consider making a donation to us this day and help us prevent 10,000 out-of-school girls from becoming child brides. 

GlobalGiving will match up to $1,000 per donor per project on Bonus Day!

You are an integral part our work and we look forward to your support.
