Child marriage is #Solvable

Child marriage is #Solvable. Princess Mabel van Oranje of the Netherlands outlines how we can share a percentage of what we spend on weddings to help end the crisis of child marriage.

Princess Mabel is the chairman of the Board for Girls Not Brides: The Global Partnership to End Child Marriage. She is also the co-founder and chair of the European Council on Foreign Relations. She served as the first director of The Elders, an independent group of eminent world leaders brought together by Nelson Mandela, who promote peace, justice, and human rights. She also founded the European Action Council for Peace in the Balkans, worked for the Open Society Foundations, and was involved in the creation of War Child Netherlands.
