The More Than Brides Alliance invites you to our

INTERNATIONAL LEARNING EVENT:

‘Making the Most of Wat We Know’ of the link between Child Marriage and Sexuality

Causes of child marriage are diverse and context-specific but 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.

Therefore, the More Than Brides Alliance is facilitating the generation, collation, and exchange of knowledge on the links between girl’s sexuality and child marriage through an International Learning Event. This event aims to reflect on what practices are working to address drivers of child marriage related to sexuality of girls from multiple perspectives to improve programming.

Multiple perspectives in a blended online and face-to-face event

Join us for a three-day blended online and face-to-face event in nine countries to learn, exchange, reflect, and develop effective strategies on how to address sexuality in child marriage programs. The event will build upon the knowledge gathered, generated, exchanged, and collated across countries from various perspectives. This includes knowledge generated by girls through youth-led research, bringing together existing research with the knowledge of practitioners, and developing knowledge and facilitating exchanges through the Spark Fund. The event will have diverse participants including girls, practitioners, researchers, and policymakers from multiple countries.
