Summary

More than 12 million girls become child brides every year. That's one girl every three seconds who is robbed of her childhood, one girl every three seconds who is at increased risk of violence and child sexual abuse. Over the past two months, Girls Not Brides members have come together through #StopStealingHerChildhood campaign to show world leaders that inaction isn't an option. As a member of Girls Not Brides, we are determined to end child marriage in Nigeria at all cost.

Challenge

Nigeria ratified the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) in 1991. The world's most rapidly and widely ratified human rights treaty, the CRC sets out a basic, universal standard for a healthy, protected, decent childhood for every human being yet every minute a girl-child is married off against her will, education attainment terminated and dreams aborted by this reoccurring act. continuous practice of early girl-child marriage is caused by a number of factors which include poverty and ...

Solution

SNCC focus on empowering girls, mobilising families and communities, provide health services, establish and implement laws and policies. We will work directly with girls to give them the opportunity to build skills and knowledge, understand and exercise their rights and develop support networks, this is an important part of our efforts to end child marriage. Using an empowerment approach can lead to positive outcomes for girls and their families by supporting girls to become agents of change.

Long-Term Impact

This project will empower 1,000 young girls and young brides, allowing them to rise out of the state of helplessness and illiteracy to active agents of change in their communities. The sensitization workshops will encourage parents and community leaders' participation in advocacy against girl- child marriage and ensure the enactment of regulations that curb early girl-child marriages in Nigeria and raise a lasting awareness against this practice through the gender equality workshops
