More Than Brides Alliance
The More Than Brides Alliance (MTBA) empowers young people to decide if and when to get married and to make informed choices about their Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR).
HOW WE OPERATE
The More Than Brides Alliance (MTBA) consists of Save the Children Netherlands, Oxfam Novib, Simavi and Population Council. With funding from the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs this alliance is implementing the Programme ‘Marriage: No Child’s Play’ (2016-2020) with the aim to reduce child marriage and its adverse effects on young women and girls. The Programme is implemented in India, Pakistan, Malawi, Niger and Mali.
Our goal is for young people to be able to decide if and when to marry and pursue their SRHR in a supportive environment. To contribute to this goal, the MTBA has been working to achieve the following outcomes.
