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


Abriendo oportunidades (“Opening opportunities”)

Organisation: Girls Not Brides, Population Council Year: 2016

Girls Not Brides has created a series of case studies as part of the interactive Theory of Change to illustrate how members are working in a variety of ways towards ending child marriage.

Population Council’s “Abriendo Oportunidades” programme works with adolescent girls in rural Guatemala to provide them with the skills and support they need to improve their lives. The programme specifically aims to reduce child marriage by encouraging girls to stay in school and providing them with sexual and reproductive information and services.

The case study looks at the programme’s different components and some of the challenges and lessons learned from its implementation.
