Education is the single most effective way to prevent child marriage. Too Young to Wed's direct support focuses on countries with high numbers and rates of child, early and forced marriages. Our Leadership Scholarship program supports girls-at-risk for and survivors of child marriage, and creates pathways for them to thrive. In having access to sustained education, these girls become the voices of change in their communities.

We subscribe to the philosophy of Compassionate and Community Leadership. All students receiving leadership scholarships commit themselves to actively participate in community service projects at a local, national or international level. 


We support the creation of a new generation of young women leaders, who will positively transform their local communities. We aim to provide safe and healing spaces and cultivate the physical, psychological, and social and spiritual well-being of their students.  Leadership scholarships are beyond academic excellence. 


TYTW Leadership Scholarships offer students the spaces needed to have a real voice, and to create effective communication between the student and the local communities. We aim to have these young women leaders voices be heard and respected to ensure real change on the ground.
