For over 30 years FORWARD has supported some of the world’s most vulnerable girls and women. Our work on female genital mutilation and child marriage has led us to uncover an alarming reality; child mothers are being left behind in the international effort to help women and girl’s access their human rights. 

When girls become mothers it marks the premature end of their childhood. The end of childhood often marks the end of their education which in turn stunts their economic potential. 

Through the Make Child Mother’s Count Campaign, FORWARD aims to support child mothers to return to school. Each donation will help combat the hidden costs of re-enrolment such as school uniforms, satchels, notebooks and stationary. For every girl who finishes school not only her life, but the life of her child will be transformed. Help us make child mothers count this June. Please donate generously.
