Welcome to the ‘HER CHOICE’ website!

HER CHOICE is an alliance of four Netherlands-based organisations: Stichting Kinderpostzegels Nederland, The Hunger Project, International Child Development Initiatives (ICDI) and the University of Amsterdam. These organisations combine their efforts with 27 local partner organisations to combat child marriage in eleven countries. The programme runs from January 2016 to December 2020 and is implemented in partnership with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Netherlands.

Child marriage is a widespread phenomenon that endangers the healthy development and well being of girls and young women all over the world. Each year, 15 million girls get married before the age of 18. HER CHOICE aims to build child marriage-free communities where each girl is free to decide if, when and whom she marries. Where this will be HER CHOICE.

Today is the launch of the HER CHOICE website! Through this website we’ll keep you informed about HER CHOICE (Building Child Marriage Free Communities) the coming years.
