Project Launch: 10/16/18

Ndikudikirila is a male-targeted project and campaign against early forced marriages with boys pledging to wait for a girl child until the right marriageable age. The campaign will work with boys and young men and train them as Stop Early Marriages Male Defenders in the fishing district of Nkhotakota which is in a region with high rates of forced child marriage. Defenders will develop and execute sporting competitions against early forced marriages, hold debates and quiz competitions, use of theater and interactive ICT, Facebook and WhatsApp social media communication platforms, hold talent shows as a tool for engagement and communication and organize coed social clubs for youth. In this way, young men will be transformation partners and role models, reaching fellow men in rural fishing communities where early forced marriages have persisted.
