Career Development Fighting Child Marriages ft Chakanetsa Ruzvidzo

Synopsis: Our understanding is that after every child has received and receiving information about Sexual Reproductive Health and the parents on why they should desist from marrying off their kids - they also need a sense of purpose. A sense of purpose on what they should look upto. We are convinced the answer is a CAREER PATH.

Strategic Outcomes:

1. Raise awareness to the fight against child marriages.
2. Encourage parents to support children especially girls in career development.
3. Inform CSO's working towards gilr empowerment to look into and even include career development in their work against child marriages.
4. Start discussions on: Career Parenting, Child Marriages, Importance of Career Choices, National Development, Girl Child Empowerment among others.
