Yesterday, Princess Mabel attended the screening of the movie 'Tall as the Baobab Tree' and the discussion about ending child marriage during the 'Movies that Matter Festival' in The Hague, March 24, 2013.
Princess Mabel is still a senior adviser (on a part-time basis) of The Elders for the initiative 'Girls not Brides: the global partnership to end child marriage'.

Glad that she is still with The Elders, even in a limited capacity.

The organisation 'Girls not brides', founded by Pss Mabel, received 7 million euros from the Canadian government. The organisation also received a human rights award.

ROYALBLOG.NL: Canada eert prinses Mabel en Girls Not Brides met mensenrechtenprijs

A Canadian article:

OTTAWA -- A Dutch princess lauded by the Harper government for her efforts to oppose the forced marriage of young girls is calling on Canada and its wealthy partner countries to boost overall aid spending.
Princess Mabel van Oranje of the Netherlands praised the government's so-called child bride initiative, saying it has made Canada a world leader on an international development issue that has few champions.
On Tuesday, Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird bestowed the government's John Diefenbaker human rights award on van Oranje's organization, Girls Not Brides, an umbrella group of 400 non-governmental organizations operating in 60 countries.
