‘Making the Most of What We Know’ about child marriage & adolescent female sexuality
An example of learning initiated by the More Than Brides Alliance is our multi-country, multi-alliance learning initiative aimed at ‘Making the Most of What We Know’ of the links between child marriage and female adolescent sexuality. The learning outcomes of the project will lay a more solid base so that organizations can implement and advocate for interventions that are grounded in promising practice and empirical evidence. The ‘Making the Most of What we Know’ learning project (2019-2021) is a complementary project funded by the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs. It is implemented in up to nine countries starting in the MTBA focus countries India, Pakistan, Malawi, Niger and Mali followed by Bangladesh, Ethiopia, Nepal and Uganda. The project consists of the following innovative learning elements:
- Collating evidence & practice: bringing together practical implementation experience and research evidence about child marriage & adolescent female sexuality in knowledge products.
- Youth-led knowledge generation: Capturing the perspectives of girls and young women themselves.
- Learning and Exchange Spark fund: flexible and participatory grant-making mechanism for cross-partner, cross-country and cross-alliance learning.
All lessons learned of the different components of the ‘Making the Most of What We Know’ learning project will be brought together in an international learning meeting scheduled for February 2021. Resources developed as part of this project will be published on the resources and research section of this website.
