UK aid from the British people

Project Data Last Updated: 04/07/2019

IATI Identifier: GB-1-204496

Description

DFID is providing up to £39m over a period of 5 years (2015-2020) to support global efforts for accelerating action to end child marriage. The UK has been at the forefront of international efforts to end child marriage. This programme is aligned with UK’s national interest - we cannot end global poverty, realise lasting peace or prosperity without empowering girls and women. When a girl marries later, she is more likely to stay in school longer and have better access to information, support and resources to earn a decent income. The intended outcome of the programme is adolescent girls supported to make healthier, safer and more empowered life transitions including on marriage choices and childbearing. The intended impact is: Reduction in prevalence of child marriage.
