End Child Marriage

We call all the ambassadors of change, member organizations and other civic organizations to collaborate with us at Save & Nurture Child Care Foundation to end child marriage, child abuse and child labour.

Mission to end child marriage and other child- related chanllenges

As we join the world in celebrating the International day of the Girl on 11 October, SNCC is calling for collaboration and youth engagement to improve girls’ education, skills, and job prospects globally. We focus on the welfare and education of every child, especially the girl- children and we emphasize on the importance of creating opportunities, learning and safe spaces for girls’ voices to be heard and listened to in decisions that affect them.

The founder of Save & Nurture Child Care Foundation, Oluwadamilola Taiwo says that, investing in every girl- child is not a waste of resources but a treasure that is being discovered, nurtured and nourished for today and tomorrow’s leadership and excellence. The major element that can prevent or affects the impact of our work to end girl- child marriage is : “Poverty is a key driver of child marriage, and girls from poor families are more likely to become child brides than those from wealthier households.

If we really want to tackle poverty and end child marriage, we must give all girls the tools they need to invest in themselves. That means providing them with the quality education and training they need to earn an income and create a better future for themselves and their family,”

Every year, 12 million girls are married globally before the age of 18, depriving them of their rights to education, health and a life of their choosing. Evidence shows that girls who attend secondary school are three times less likely to be child brides.

Rachel Yates, Interim Executive Director of Girls Not Brides: The Global Partnership to End Child Marriage, which comprises of over 1300 civil society organizations, said: “Investing in efforts to end child marriage isn’t just the right thing to do – it’s also smart economics. When girls are educated instead of being married young, and have opportunities to earn an income, they are more likely to lead happier, healthier lives, and to contribute to the growth and development of their communities. 

The organization embarks on programs, such as Girls Not Slave program and the SNCC Kids Club which will be a platform to enlighten the community and schools on the importance of girl- children getting proper and quality education. The program is going to highlight how with the right skills and support, girls can break barriers and build a better world for themselves.

To mark the international day of the girl, Save & Nurture Child Care Foundation is calling on all stakeholders and ambassadors of change globally to come together to ensure that we protect the girl child and also empower them to become the change agent they are meant to be by educating them.
