In the second phase of the program, both small-scale grants and training and mentoring support for institutional development will be provided for civil society organizations (CSOs) carrying out rights-based studies and working in the prevention of child, early, and forced marriage or in cross-cutting areas such as children's rights, women's rights, refugee rights, public health, etc.
The project aims to
- Increase the institutional capacity of CSOs, which carry out activities to prevent child, early and forced marriage, so that they can fulfill their essential functions and achieve their goals.
- Strengthen the communication and advocacy capacity of local CSOs by encouraging them to include the prevention of child, early, and forced marriage in their work and practices.
Target group of the project
Local or national civil society organizations working directly in the prevention of child, early, and forced marriage, or in cross-cutting areas such as children's rights, women's rights, refugee rights, public health, etc.
- As part of our small-scale grant support, civil society organizations in the target group will be invited to submit project proposals that place the prevention of child, early, and forced marriage at the center of their activities.
