VOW for Girls initiative

One of the best initiatives to come out of the Elders.org is the VOW for Girls initiative.

VOW is partnering with couples who are celebrating weddings or anniversaries to raise funds to end child marriage. Guests can make a donation to VOW in lieu of, or in addition to, wedding gifts, so if you have friends or family getting married or celebrating anniversaries who already have plenty of toasters, glassware and ceramic bowls they may want to make a gift that could have a big impact on a young girl’s life.

After just a few years more than 8,000 couples have aligned their weddings with VOW and the initiative has already impacted more than 260,000 girls worldwide.
