The More Than Brides Alliance invites you to our


‘Making the Most of What We Know’ on the link between child marriage and the sexuality of adolescent girls

The causes of child marriage are diverse and context-specific. However, one consistently powerful driver across contexts is gender inequality, especially concerning norms related to the sexuality of adolescent girls. However, these causes of child marriage are insufficiently addressed, documented, and exchanged in child marriage programming.

From 1-4 March, the More Than Brides Alliance is hosting an International Learning Event with girls, researchers, practitioners, and policymakers across 9 countries.

Building on the lessons learned from research evidence and implementation experience, together we will Learn & Exchange about the link between child marriage and sexuality, Reflect on how programmatic approaches and interventions can better address the sexuality-related drivers of child marriage, and Prepare to Act! on individual and collective levels to better address these drivers.

We invite you to join us on 4 March from 9-12 CET of this learning event as we Prepare to Act! Participants from our Learning Project share their actions and recommendations on how to best address sexuality-related drivers in child marriage programs.
