A bit sad, but full of hope for the future, we look back on the three days we spend together during the online event ‘5 years Her Choice: beating the drum for child marriage-free communities!’. During this event, we looked back on 5 years of the Her Choice programme, together with all 30 local partners from Bangladesh, Pakistan, Nepal, Benin, Uganda, Burkina Faso, Mali, Senegal, Ethiopia and Ghana. Participants gained new insights, practices, partners ánd friends.
The last five years, Her Choice has worked hard to end child marriage, together with girls and boys, their families, ánd their communities. Now the Her Choice programme comes to an end, théy are telling the story of five years of Her Choice in this special video.
We firmly believe that all trained change makers will continue to make sustainable impact in their communities. So that these girls and boys, also after Her Choice, can choose if, when and whom to marry. Still, every year 12 million girls are married before the age of 18. So let’s all continue our efforts to empower girls so that they can help build a future free of child marriage!
