Breakthrough Gala 2019

Designing Dreams, a unique fashion show and fundraiser to build a world where girls have the power of choice to live their lives the way they want to.

In India, 12 million girls are married at an age when they should be in school and playing with their friends. We are coming together with designer extraordinaire Rohit Bal to put together a fashion show, which will raise money to power our projects on stopping early marriage and ensuring that girls continue their education. People in support of this cause will purchase a Rohit Bal garment of their choice and walk the ramp as cause ambassadors!

Together with designer Rohit Bal, esteemed patrons, Priya Paul and Michelle Poonawalla and cause ambassadors, the Breakthrough team stands stronger in its fight against early marriage.

In India,

every 4th girl is a child bride.

Millions of young girls in India still live a life of neglect, violence and being unwanted. At the root of this is a patriarchal mindset which reduces them to being a burden. It’s not that these young girls don’t dream or don’t have aspirations. What these girls don’t have is the support to follow their dreams, make their own life choices. An early marriage snatches their childhood away and pushes them into a life of teenage pregnancy and domestic violence.

You can be the support they need. You can help them achieve their dreams. Support our work to end early marriage and enable young girls to have the power of choice!
