Child Frontiers and IDRC on Child Marriage in Zambia

September 15, 2017

Child Frontiers has received funding from the International Development Research Centre in Canada to work in collaboration with the Young Lives project at the University of Oxford, Grupo de Análisis para el Desarrollo in Peru and the Ethiopian Development Research Institute in Ethiopia, to conduct a comparative study of child marriage and parenthood in Ethiopia, Peru, India (united Andhra Pradesh) and Zambia. This project, spread over a 2.5 year period, is concerned with deepening understandings of the experiences of children who marry and who become parents, the predictors of and motivations for child marriage and parenthood, and the wider implications on sexual and reproductive health and for breaking intergenerational cycles of poverty and gender inequality. This study will draw on and build upon existing multi-country longitudinal data from Young Lives, as well as a recent study carried out by Child Frontiers in Zambia.
