How Marriage & Education Are Linked?
Girls who are married are often expected to drop out of school, almost ensuring that they will live lives of poverty. Educating girls gives them the chance at a better life. CARE works to identify the most at-risk girls and pays their families $100 a month. By alleviating the families' financial struggles, CARE ensures that the girls can continue their education.
  • 142 Million Children will be married by 2020 if this trends continue
  • Almost 39,000 Girls become child brides every single day, often married to much older men
  • Up to 60% of girls without education are married by age 18
  • 31 million girls are currently out of school
Since we've launched, Olivela shoppers have provided over 30,037 days of school to girls across the globe.
