HER CHOICE: NOW
MORE THAN EVER
The COVID-19 pandemic has a major impact on the lives of girls and the communities they live in. This demands even more focus, so girls don’t become victims, but part of the solution. So it will be, and will remain Her Choice.
Each year, 12 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.
ON CHILD MARRIAGE
After 3 years of programme implementation, research shows a decreasing trend in child marriage in the Her Choice working areas. Also, girls have more knowledge about sexual and reproductive health and rights and speak out more about those subjects in community meetings.
Her Choice uses 6 intervention strategies that are based on evidence which shows that the most consistent results of targeting child marriages are achieved by fostering information, skills and networks for girls in combination with community mobilisation.
