National Partnerships and Coalitions

Accelerating Progress to end Child Marriage

National Partnerships are groups of Girls Not Brides members who believe in the power of collective action to end child marriage, who have aligned their work with the Girls Not Brides global strategy, and who have signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Girls Not Brides secretariat.

Girls Not Brides has National Partnerships in eleven countries: Bangladesh, Burkina Faso, Ghana, Malawi, Mozambique, Nepal, the Netherlands, Rajasthan state (India), Uganda, the United Kingdom and the United States.

Girls Not Brides also works with national coalitions in other countries. Please consult the list of national coalitions on the right to find out more about each country.
