Description

Led by Rise Up, ENGAGE is an innovative approach to ending early marriage and enabling Malawian girls to finish school. Through deep community consultations with young girls, boys and traditional authorities in Malawi, YTH discovered how mobile technology can be used to educate and support young people and adults to prevent child marriage. The outcome was a text message campaign to reach young girls with information on local laws and other life skills including sexual and reproductive health.
