The More Than Brides Alliance (MTBA) consists of Save the Children NL, 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 Mission

We are convinced that young people, especially girls, are only able to decide if and when to marry if they are empowered to make informed decisions, if their protective assets are built, and if their community respects their rights. The Alliance thus offers a multi-pronged approach of equipping adolescents with necessary skills and information, enhancing access to education, economic opportunities and child protection systems; increasing access to SRHR services; changing social norms on child marriage, SRHR and gender, and influencing legal and policy frameworks. Formative Research, Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning and the results thereof are used to guide and adapt the programme during implementation.

OUR GOAL

Young people are 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

THE PARTNERSHIP

In partnership with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of The Netherlands.
