This guide provides information on how World Vision offices can integrate child marriage prevention and response into programming, including guidance on working with married children. In addition, the guide intends to support the development of country-specific technical approaches and new programs to address child marriage.
World Vision is launching a new, partnership-wide campaign to end violence against children. The campaign is the result of discernment, prayer, and need for decisive action to address an issue that affects over one billion children every year, children in every country and every community. Many National Offices (NOs) have indicated plans to include child marriage in their local and national campaigns, increasing the focus in programming and advocacy to address this as part of the overall push to end violence against children. It is hoped that this document will help guide NOs in their journey to eliminating child marriage and ending violence against children.
