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.
OF CHILD MARRIAGE
No society can afford the lost opportunities, waste of talent or personal exploitation that child marriage causes. Girls who marry later attain higher levels of education, fare better economically, have fewer children and raise healthier families.
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.
