Integrating the Response to Child Marriage in East Africa
“Child Marriage in Humanitarian Settings: Integrating the Response to Child Marriage” is a two-year initiative to engage feminist and women-led civil society organizations, experts, and practitioners to learn how best to enhance coordination and collaboration with humanitarian actors to end child marriage and support already married girls in forcibly displaced and crisis-affected communities in East Africa.
WRC has a resource hub on this initiative, which includes a collection of briefings and reports that shares key learnings and insights from the initiative’s participatory action research and advocacy.
