Our Theory of Change describes not only our vision – a world without child marriage where girls and women enjoy equal status with boys and men and can achieve their full potential in all aspects of their lives – but also the intermediate steps needed to make it a reality.
Many Girls Not Brides member organisations work towards outcomes and results identified in our Theory of Change. Measuring the results of their programmes and advocacy helps organisations to assess their progress and contributions towards ending child marriage.
Having appropriate indicators is important to assess and record changes on child marriage and the welfare of married girls. Below are some resources to guide you in measuring change.
Our series of case studies highlight and bring to life the four pillars of our Theory of Change through the work of our membership.
