Project Name: Preventing Child Forced Early Marriage (CFEM) in Fishing Communities
Study period: expected to end in December
Child marriage is a fundamental attack on children’s human rights and in our experience is intricately entwined with the twin problems of child trafficking and child labour. To this end, PDA has been contracted by Challenging Heights to conduct research that will lead to better understanding of the nature and extent of CFEM. The project aims among others to increase knowledge and understanding about the extent and nature of child marriage in fishing communities that are the source or destination of child trafficking. We will do this by conducting unique research on child marriage with our beneficiaries.
