Young girls are increasingly becoming victims of early and forced marriages. Poverty levels are the main issue, with parents or the girls themselves using early marriage for economic gains. This leads to increased levels of school dropouts and absenteeism among girls.

Program Aims:

  • To raise awareness on child marriage and child’s rights abuse.
  • To empower children with the life skills they need to defend, protect, report abuse and seek redress.
  • To empower community structures to effectively respond to child marriage cases.
  • To collaborate with village leaders and community groups to combat child marriage.
