parents, general community and groups of young people (married and unmarried).
Mother and Child health Care Project:
Raising awareness of the benefits of delaying marriage for girls: Ongoing advocacy efforts, such as community level events, were made to keep stakeholders, especially religious and opinion leaders, informed about the effect of early marriage and early pregnancy. Inviting them to attend or preside over major events helped generate and strengthen involvement and positive attitudes towards youth sexual and reproductive health activities.
