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

Nigeria

The Coalition of Civil Society to End Child Marriage in Nigeria was established in December 2015 when the group carried out initial research projects and began to mobilise civil society organisations working to end child marriage. The coalition is currently formed of 32 members from across the six geo-political zones, 17 of which are actively engaged in the Technical Working Group to End Child Marriage in Nigeria which is chaired by the Federal Ministry of Women Affairs. The steering committee composed by eight member organisations is led by two co-chairs, with ActionAid International Nigeria holding the secretariat.
