Description

I’d like to share this article written by Gabby Gillespie to give this issue some perspective. She is a former child bride who was sold in Yemen and escaped 17 years later with her children. There are so many like her who live in our communities, and we have little idea of what they’ve suffered.

What is the event?

UN Women are collaborating with Canadian leaders to present an internationally spectacular event and fundraiser for Child Brides. This glamorous global event will give you the chance to help this plight by proclaiming that you are determined to help put an end to the atrocity and your ticket purchase will reflect your committment. The evening will be filled with entertainment, live music, poignant moments when we focus on the matter at hand through the words of victims, United Nations Diplomats, and Canadian Leaders, You will have the chance to mingle with high-profile guests, and swoon over a special surprise from famed Italian goldsmith and businessman, Gerardo Sacco,trusted jewellery designer to Elizabeth Taylor, Sophia Loren, and Lady Di. Celebrity chef Mark Brand will serve a Mediterranean feast and Wine is included. Gold level sponsors are invited to a special VIP wine tasting and reception at 4pm prior to the event so that they can have a moment with the celebrities, leaders, and diplomats along with press and photo ops.

Why this event?

Each year, 15 million girls are married before the age of 18. That is one every two seconds. There is growing recognition that forced child marriage is a human rights violation and a severe impediment to social and economic development. This is not just an international crisis; it’s a North American issue as well. Although Canada currently has no domestic legislation specific to child marriage, various provisions in family, immigration and criminal laws do address marriage without consent. Families also still send children elsewhere to marry at even younger ages. In the United States, it was revealed in a February 2017 report that over 248,000 children had been married between 2000 and 2010, mostly to adult men. Several states - including Massachusetts - allow children to get married as young as 12 or 13 'in exceptional circumstances.’ What is the goal? There are lawyers currently working pro bono in North America and in developing countries to close the loopholes that subject millions of children to lives of forced marriage and statutory rape. It will require ample funding to provide resources for the children, once the marriages are annulled, to transition into a healthy and self-sustainable life, including education, job skills, medical care, and emotional support.

We hope to secure your support for this incredible event where we will be showcasing Canada to a Global Community while both educating and fundraising for large scale change.
