Every year, millions of couples celebrate their love by getting married, and millions of their family and friends celebrate with them.
What if we could share this love to do something bigger?
Our partner organisation VOW to End Child Marriage is an independent charitable initiative that invites the wedding industry, companies and individuals to play a role in ending child marriage.
Make a donation, start a fundraiser for your guests, buy VOW-branded products or make VOW your wedding registry charity of choice, so that your wedding can help girls around the world choose their own futures.
100% of the money raised by VOW goes to grassroots organisations working to end child marriage.
The impact for girls
With donations made through VOW, grassroots organisations have worked with girls to ensure they can stay in school, build their confidence and leadership skills, and know their rights and options. They also work with families and communities to transform the harmful social norms that perpetuate child marriage, and to hold decision-makers to account for their commitments to ending the practice.
Thanks to this support, girls from 6 countries including the Democratic Republic of Congo, Dominican Republic, India, Nepal, Niger and Uganda have avoided marrying as children and have more options for their futures. Read their stories on the VOW website.
