18+ Ending child marriage and teen pregnancy in Eastern and Southern Africa: Learning for Change

Organisation: Plan International Year: 2019

This report aims to help inform more effective, context-specific interventions to address child marriage and teenage pregnancy.

It documents case studies of programme innovations and successes carried out as part of Plan International’s 18+ Ending Child Marriage in Eastern and Southern Africa Programme (18+ RESA). It also gathers the stories of young people, using their own words and images, to talk about their challenges to become advocates for change in their communities.

It builds on learning from this programme to provide recommendations to civil society organisations, government departments and traditional authorities.
