Child Marriage and Day of the Girl

The Ministry of Gender and Development, THINK, and HOPE successfully held a Consultative Dialogue on Child Marriage at the Krystal Ocean View Hotel in Monrovia on Friday, October 19, 2012 in continuation of the International Day of the Girl Child. Panelists from the Ministries of Internal Affairs, Justice, Education, Health, Civil Society Organization, and a girl from the National Children’s Representative Forum gave short presentations after which thought provoking questions and answers were entertained.

A group of 30 girls developed a Manifesto during a workshop the week earlier and read the manifesto to those in attendance as well as to media institutions (print and electronic). The Manifesto will be presented to H. E. President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf on October 26, 2012 at the closing of the national observance of the Day of the Girl Child, though programs will continue through out the year. The program was graced by the Deputy Minister of Gender and Development, the Swedish International Development Agency (SIDA), the United Nations Resident Coordinator, UNCEF, UNFPA, Women’s Legislative Caucus, parents, Traditional and Religious Leaders, CSOs, 50 girls, and media institutions.
