This project aims to improve the response  from the legal system to all forms of violence against children. Through prioritizing children protection and safety, and improving the attitudes of influential community leaders, we campaign against child marriage and GBV in Cameroon. Specifically, this project will

  1. Create and Strengthen a Women's Parliamentary Caucus (WPC) to proactively engage in improving the human rights of children and promoting women’s access to decision making positions, and their participation in crucial political, social, economic, processes in Cameroon
  2. Strengthen capacities of Community leaders such as religious and traditional leaders towards eradicating GBV and harmful practices including child marriage.
