Ending Child Marriage

2020-2022 Funding: US$1,500,000 to UNFPA and UNICEF via UNICEF USA

Child marriage is globally recognized as a harmful practice and a human rights violation. Despite laws against it, the practice remains widespread and can be found in cultures, religions, ethnicities and countries around the world. Globally, 21% of girls are married before they turn 18, robbing them of their childhood. Ending child marriage requires addressing, over a period of time, the complex sociocultural and structural factors underpinning the practice. As a result, the Global Programme to End Child Marriage was designed 2020-2022

Project Description A Program to Accelerate Global Action: Phase II to cover 15 years through 2030. During this time, the priority remains on engaging adolescent girls as key agents of change in the following 12 countries with high prevalence of child marriage: Bangladesh, Burkina Faso, Ethiopia, Ghana, India, Mozambique, Nepal, Niger, Sierra Leone, Uganda, Yemen and Zambia. Zonta supported Phase I of the Global Programme, with a US$2 million contribution from 2018-2020.
