Goal / impact

Unfortunately Child marriage is a practice that happens often in the world, taking away the childhood and joy of children. Child marriage happens across countries, cultures and religions. It is fuelled by gender inequality, poverty, traditions, and insecurity. Child marriage violates girls’ rights to health, education and opportunity. It exposes girls to violence throughout their lives, and traps them in a cycle of poverty.


This action will raise money for GirlsNotBrides, an organization that works hard to end child marriage around world. The dinner will cost around €60-70 of which at least €5 goes to GirlsNotBrides. It is also possible to donate more during the evening or upfront.


We will wear our wedding dress because it is too beautiful not to wear and it makes you radiate. If you do not fit in anymore, no worries, a safety pin works wonders, or we can help you come up with another solution!

If 25 women that own a wedding dress commit, we will go for dinner all together in a restaurant in Amsterdam on September 14th 2019.
