1 in 3 of the world’s child brides live in India.
Denied schooling, a childhood, dreams, and identity.
But you can change this.

Humanitarian crises like the Ebola outbreak have taught us that with long school closures and financial distress, families force their daughters into early marriage as a way of coping. With the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, we are facing the same dangers.

Make a promise today.
To end early marriage and keep girls in school.

When you make a donation to Breakthrough, you become part of Team Change. Your donation helps us talk to communities about keeping girls in school, and not getting them married.

Your donation creates a tiny piece of change. A father decides to keep his daughter in school. That simple decision sets into motion a ripple of possibilities for her. She goes to school. She stands up for her siblings. She dreams of being a doctor. Do you see?

With just this choice you’ve made, to be part of Team Change, you’ve changed her world.
