Ending Child Marriage in Zimbabwe

September 2, 2015

ROOTS embarked on The Not Ripe for Marriage campaign to end child marriages in Zimbabwe in November 2014. The overall objectives of the campaign were to build a movement of people with increased awareness on child marriages and committed to end the practice, influence change in the policy environment and advocate for legislative review and realignment of the customary law and marriage act to be pegged at the same age as the Legal Age of Majority (18). Ultimately the campaign which had a lot of activities targeting the grassroots level sought to see community members displaying a change in existing attitudes, behaviours and norms around child marriage and have community members beginning to exhibit commitment to end child marriage in their communities.
