Webinar: Strengthening Livelihoods and Preventing Child Marriage in times of COVID-19
Join us for a cross-sector webinar profiling World Vision’s recent case studies demonstrating how livelihoods interventions like Savings for Transformation (S4T) can support efforts to end child marriage in Ghana, Mozambique and Sierra-Leone.
The COVID-19 pandemic and its accompanying economic crisis has placed children at even greater risk of poverty and violence. Poverty’s knock-on effect on family income also risks derailing progress on ending child marriages, child labour and sexual exploitation. In this context, livelihoods interventions focusing on children are critical to increase their resilience and ensure the fulfilment and enjoyment of child rights.
On this webinar, you will learn about and discuss promising practices on livelihoods interventions to address child marriage and hear first-hand from project participants promoting the scale-up of what works.
We hope to see you on the webinar!
