COVID-19: latest news and resources on child marriage and COVID-19

Kenya

The national coalition came together in September 2017 under the coordination of AMREF and Plan Kenya, and is now composed of over 30 members, most of which address the issues of child marriage and FGM simultaneously. The group is well placed to influence and advise on the National Action Plan on ending child marriage under development. In May 2018, the group elected regional coordinators responsible for liaising between the steering committee and members from the respective regions: Samburu Girls Foundation (North Rift Region), Pastoralists Girls Initiative (Frontier Region), NIGEE (Lake Region), Daughters of Kenya (South Eastern Region) and Anti-FGM Youth Network (Coast Region). The steering committee is composed by 13 members, including five young activists.
