To date, funds raised by VOW have supported 177 local organisations in six priority countries – the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Dominican Republic, India, Nepal, Niger, and Uganda working to prevent and end child marriage by:
- Educating girls, providing ﬁnancial scholarships to keep girls in school, and encouraging girls that have been out of school to re-enrol by offering catch-up classes.
- Engaging parents and religious leaders on the importance of gender equality between daughters and sons and the beneﬁts of ending child marriage for the entire family.
- Providing job training, teaching girls marketable skills such as carpentry, computer literacy, and accounting.
- Health education, educating children about girls' sexual and reproductive health and rights, and providing access to sexual health clinics.
- Girls' leadership, building conﬁdence in girls through a variety of approaches, including sports that challenge traditional gender roles, and using theatre as a way of advocating for greater gender equality that highlights the dangers of child marriage.
