More Than Brides Alliance
The More than Brides Alliance (MTBA) facilitates collaboration between girls, practitioners and researchers to share insights and support girls’ rights to be able to choose if and when to get married and to make informed choices about their sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR).
HOW WE OPERATE
Child marriage is rooted in gender inequality and patriarchal ideas about female sexuality. Building on our programmatic and research experience since 2015, the More Than Brides Alliance is committed to addressing the root causes of child marriage in order to positively impact the sexual and reproductive health, rights and wellbeing of girls and their communities.
Our goal is for girls to be able to decide if and when to marry and to pursue their sexual and reproductive health rightsin a supportive environment. We collate and share knowledge to improve policy and practice based on our research, implementation experience and learning exchanges with key actors working in the field of child marriage and sexual reproductive health and rights.
