“My child marriage free community challenge”

Organisation: Girls Not Brides, Regional Network of the Children and Young People Trust (RNCYPT) Year: 2017

In this case study we explore the work of the Regional Network of the Children and Young People Trust (RNCYPT) in Zimbabwe.

This youth-led organisation has been organising a challenge between religious leaders from different communities, to foster their creativity and encourage them to become champions of the movement to end child marriage at the grassroots level.

In 2019, the most excelling and innovative leaders will receive a small grant, partly dedicated to support girls’ education.
