Take A Pledge
Thanks to your support, the petition we helped Aberash (the young girl featured in our film) launch as part of our impact campaign was successful. Secretary John Kerry released the Adolescent Girls Strategy earlier this year, which will elevate and coordinate efforts to empower girls and end child marriage globally. But there is still more work to do as our impact campaign shifts to the next phase with the goal of ending child marriage in Ethiopia. Read the next section to learn more.
Help us raise money for Aberash’s new nonprofit organization Women for Women Social and Development Association through our fiscal sponsorship with the nonprofit Truth Aid. 100% of your donations will go towards supporting the work of Women for Women. Our goal is to raise $50,000 to help jump start the community work in Ethiopia. We have raised close to $10,000 from our community of supporters so far and are well on our way. Your donations are 100% tax-deductible.
