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

Tanzania

Established in 2012, the Tanzania Ending Child Marriage Network (TECMN), composed of over 35 members and coordinated by Children’s Dignity Forum, provided expertise to the government regarding the development of the National Plan of Action to End Violence against Women and Children. They have also been instrumental in engaging the media, which led to a national debate on the re-entry policy of pregnant girls into education. The group remains active in advocating for the change of the Marriage Act.
