Girls First Fund
The Girls First Fund is a donor collaborative supported by leading philanthropic organisations and individual philanthropists who have come together to champion community-led efforts so that all girls can live free from child marriage and create their own future. It focuses on girls, families, and communities as they are in the best position to create lasting, local change and address the causes of child marriage at their roots.
The Girls First Fund is the first funding partnership of its size focused on ending child marriage, with grantmaking directed to community-based and locally-focused national organisations.
Its founding funders include Children’s Investment Fund Foundation and Ford Foundation.
