Accelerating Action to End Child Marriage Programme Phase 2
This will be the UK’s second global, multi-sectoral programme to tackle child marriage and respond to its consequences. This programme will provide £18 million to deliver interventions across high prevalence countries, including fragile and conflict affected states, to prevent child marriages, lower global prevalence rates and support already married girls to have improved life outcomes. The programme will enable girls to take greater control over their lives and bodies. It will contribute to increased access to education for girls, reduced adolescent pregnancy and maternal deaths and a range of broader development outcomes. In addition, the programme will strengthen the international evidence base on what works to prevent child marriage and increase use of this evidence by a range of actors. This will in turn increase the effectiveness and efficiency of wider interventions aiming to end child marriage.
