Preventing Child, Early and Forced Marriage (CEFM) through Open, Distance & Technology-Based Education

ADPP is implementing the GIRLS Inspire project in seven targeted communities around Nacala Porto in Nampula Province. Nacala Porto is one of most used ports of entry into Malawi, Zambia and Zimbabwe. Research by the International Organization for Migration (2006) reports that Nacala Porto ranks high for HIV and AIDS vulnerability, as it is frequented by a transient population that uses it as access to a commercial sex trade, which exposes children and women to the risk of sexual abuse and exploitation. The GIRLS Inspire project is being implemented in this area due to its high rate of child marriages.
