Sell your wedding dress and save lives
Brides do Good work with charity partners including Plan International and Too Young To Wed, and since 2016 have funded projects in Egypt, Ethiopia and Nigeria focused on ensuring safe access to quality education for vulnerable young girls, providing the tools and training needed to safeguard an independent future free from the dangers of child marriage.
Millions of underage girls are faced into marriage every year. These girls are vulnerable, frightened and robbed of a future where they can make their own choices to pursue education, fall in love, travel… all the things we take for granted.
Ending child marriage is more than protecting the innocent. It’s about promoting girls’ rights and providing opportunities for them to reach their full potential.
Brides do Good will be popping-up in Mayfair from now until 30th Nov 2018. https://www.bridesdogood.com
