Description and results


This grant represents Canada’s institutional support to Girls Not Brides. Girls Not Brides uses these funds, along with other donor’s funding to achieve its mandate of ending child, early and forced marriage (CEFM). Girls Not Brides is a global partnership of 1,300 civil society organizations in 100 countries. Members are based throughout Africa, Asia, the Middle East, Europe and the Americas, and are united by a commitment to end child marriage and enable girls to reach their full potential. Project activities include: (1) raising awareness of the harmful impact of child marriage by encouraging open, inclusive and informed discussion at the community, local, national and international level; (2) facilitating learning and coordination among organizations working to end child marriage; and (3) mobilizing all necessary policy, financial and other support to end child marriage.

Expected results

The expected outcome for this project include: (1) governments take action to end child marriage and address the needs of married girls in their countries, with the active participation of civil society and other stakeholders; (2) the global community champions and supports efforts to end child marriage; (3) efforts to engage communities, families and girls are supported and highlighted; (4) more sustainable funding for effective approaches is available from a diverse range of sources, particularly for grassroots organizations; (5) efforts to end child marriage are informed by evidence and lessons learned; and (6) the partnership continues to collaborate, diversify and strengthen.
