Girls under 18 who are forced into marriage are less likely to go to school and more likely to be abused, contract HIV and face life-threatening complications while pregnant or giving birth. On a global and local level, CARE is working effectively to combat child marriage and its devastating impact. CARE also offers much needed support for married girls and adolescents to stay healthy and continue their dreams. Your gift will help provide training in reproductive health, financial literacy and economic opportunities for child brides, among other critical programs.
The gifts in this catalog are virtual gifts representative of what CARE does to support the fight against poverty.
