Preventing Child Marriage for Sponsored Children and their Communities

Sponsored child Juliet, 8, likes to play with her sister. Their favorite game is jumping rope. Juliet gets good grades in class and one day hopes to become a teacher. But, in Zambia, 32 percent of girls are married before their 18th birthday…so will Juliet be able to achieve her dreams? 

In communities where Plan International works, we are raising awareness of the negative consequences of child marriage and helping girls stay in school. Plan joins together with communities to stop early marriages and - with your help – we will see results. 

You can make a difference by sponsoring a child like Juliet.
