YOUR DONATION CHANGES LIVES
Millions of women, men, girls and boys are still facing great adversity in these extraordinary times. In countries where Crossroads works, early and forced marriage and the practice of Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) are still on the rise. While the prevalence of child marriage has decreased worldwide – from one in four girls married a decade ago to approximately one in five today – the practice remains widespread. New reports from the United Nations show that 650 million women and girls alive today were married before the age of 18. Without change, another 120 million girls will be married before their 18th birthday by 2030!
Right now, around the world, COVID-19 is isolating so many girls from the support they need, and it is heartbreaking.
But there is a way you can help women and girls during these dark, demeaning and destructive months: make empowerment your gift! Your donation to Crossroads International will increase the impact of brave, determined and effective local partners. You can help them find the best solutions to the gravest issues facing women and girls, and their families and communities due to the pandemic.
Thank you for your generous donation for justice and equality towards women and girls everywhere! Your support powers our work. Help us Help them by donating today!
