End Child Marriage


The Ministry of Women Children and Youth Affairs (MOWCA) launched the National Platform on eradication of Harmful Traditional Practices (HTPs) at the 2015 Girl Summit. The platform includes stakeholders from all relevant government ministries, donors, and civil society – including women’s and youth organisations, national federations and associations, and faith-based organisations – committing them to working together for eradication of HTPs within the target timeline. This has led to new interventions, including the 2014 – 19 UNICEF programme support to government on ending child marriage.
