The global poverty-fighting organization CARE applauds the release today of the U.S. Global Strategy to Empower Adolescent Girls, which will marshal the resources of the U.S. Government to work toward better educated, healthier, and more empowered girls worldwide.

Announced by Secretary of State John Kerry, the strategy caps a multi-year, multi-pronged advocacy effort, led by CARE and its partners in Girls Not Brides, to mobilize more government action to prevent child marriage across the globe. It will bring together USAID, Peace Corps, the Millennium Challenge Corporation, and the State Department to tackle this issue, along with other barriers facing adolescent girls, including often-limited access to a quality education and health and harmful practices such as female genital mutilation.
