Project Details

CAUSE Canada will test an innovative approach to eradicate child marriage by educating men seeking child brides about the negative consequences of child marriage for them, their families and entire communities. The solution being tested includes training community leaders, empowering advocates, organizing community events against child marriage and collecting data on the number of prevented marriages vs. marriages that took place despite the intervention.
