About Us

The project is concerned about the increasing number of teenage pregnancies and rising numbers of child marriages. The focus of the innovation is therefore to contribute to a reduction in teenage pregnancies while seeking innovative ways of preventing child marriages in Zambia. The approach is centered around family units to change dominant negative social norms that affect the participation of children especially girls in education.

Impact Achieved

Reduction in school dropout rates due to child marriage and teen pregnancies among girls in the target area. However Implementation has not yet started because we are still waiting for funds to be disbursed to NCA and later to the implementing Partner (FAWEZA) who are on the ground.
