Keeping Girls out of Bedrooms: Thoughts on What It Takes to End Child Marriages in Religious Settings in Southern Africa

RIATT-ESA in collaboration with REPSSI and the ACCZ  recently held a series of dialogues with members of the Apostolic Church and the Zion Church. This group of churches is known to accept the practise of child marriages and discourage its members from accessing public medical and educational services. The dialogues and accompanying Information, Education and Communication (IEC) materials reached more than 50 000 members in 4 of the 10 provinces of Zimbabwe in April and May 2016.
