End Child Marriage With Me

What I'm Leading

Empowering and saving the girl child from the adverse effects of child, early & forced marriage (CEFM) in Longido District, Arusha Region, Northern Tanzania. . CEFM is often underpinned by rigid gender norms and expectations that constrain girls and women’s roles, value and choices, and maintain unequal gender relations in the family and society. Child brides are most often married off to older men. Boys of same age are exposed to more opportunities.
Child brides are at an increased risk of violence throughout their lives. First sexual experience is most likely forced
It is important in targeting peaceful social change in behavior and attitudes & also advocating for policy implementation.
