Project: SBC Approach to End Child Marriage - UNICEF
N'weti is implementing the program, based on UNICEF recommendations and lessons learned from previous interventions; addressing several challenges encountered: lack of knowledge of the law penalizing CM and GBV, of community resources/whistleblower mechanisms including CCPs, CLCs; and use of customary law.
