Challenge

Child marriage reduces the likelihood of a girl child completing secondary school. Girls who marry as children are often more susceptible to health risks associated with early sexual initiation and childbearing, including HIV and obstetric fistula. Lacking status and power, these girls are often subjected to domestic violence,sexual abuse and social isolation. Early marriage deprives girls of their education and meaningful work, which contributes to persistent poverty.

Solution

The project will use a mix of both formal and non-formal education, awareness, skilling, advocacy and peer to peer programs as a way of ending child marriages. The project will give a second chance to victims of child marriages to re-enroll in schools will enable them complete their education and this coupled with skilling will increase their employability and income earning potential and thus will help them better take care of themselves and their children in the future.

Long-Term Impact

Ending child marriage will reduce early child bearing age by the same amount since child marriage often leads to early child bearing. Ending child marriage will reduce fertility by at least 8 percent in mukono district and this will help lower the overall counties' population growth rate. An end to child marriage will lead to higher standards of living that will be generated due to the lower population. Ending child marriage will also increase participation of girls in the labor force.
