Every year 10 million girls are forced into marriage before their 18th birthday - that's one every three seconds.
Here in Australia these statistics are hard for us to comprehend. But they are real. Each girl's story is real.
We need to stop this happening. But we need your support to keep these girls out of forced marriages and in school.
Plan is working with children and communities across the world to address the barriers that prevent girls from completing their education. Educated girls are empowered girls who can transform their own lives and the world around them.
