The programme will increasingly focus on social cohesion. The partner supports a network of organisations to defend and enhance poor, minorities and other marginalised people’s rights and enabling them to access to assets, public services (e.g. health, education) and economic opportunities. The programme also works with local level service providers to help them meet their responsibilities and assist communities to monitor their performance. Where opportunities arise, the programme will contribute to the development of policies and laws that uphold the rights of the poor and excluded groups in society.

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.
