Advocating for Establishment and Implementation of Laws and Policies
Laws and policies play an essential part in preventing child marriage and teenage pregnancy and support married girls. A strong legal and policy system can provide an important backdrop for improvements in services, changes in social norms and girls’ empowerment.
We work with lawmakers and parliamentarians, to promote enactment, implementation, strengthen and enforcement of laws and policies that discourage child marriage and teenage pregnancy.
Registering births and marriages
We encourage the registration of births and marriages, we believe that this can helps prevent child marriage by proving the age of a girl and her partner and means that girls and women are able to seek financial and legal redress if the marriage ends.
