International Day of the Girl: creating child marriage-free communities!

Child marriage not only negatively impacts 15 million girls each year but also negatively impacts lots of
different areas and sectors, from health and education through to poverty, justice and peace. This affects
everyone.  If we don’t end child marriage, we can’t achieve eight of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).



Ending child marriage will benefit the whole world. The HER CHOICE-programme is creating child marriage-free communities in eleven countries since 2016. The HER CHOICE alliance is supported by the Ministery of Foreign Affairs and consist of Stichting Kinderpostzegels, The Hunger Project Nederland, International Child Development Initiatives and research partner AISSR/UvA.
